My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I can cook just about anything as long as I have a recipe and directions, but I'm not good at creating my own dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Like most families, every Thanksgiving and Christmas we make a HUGE dinner for all our family and friends. I havn't really been apart of that tradition until the last couple of years. Because most of my family seems to pretty health conscious, we never really had that great of desserts, so I stepped up to the plate. Now I always make the desserts for major holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving of 2006 I made a Pumpkin Cheesecake that turned out PERFECTLY. No cracks, no sinking, just perfect. I was quite proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
I've burned, over seasoned, dropped, and just straight out messed up meals... I'm more of a baker than a cook.
