As a cook, I have only recently begun my exploration into this beautiful world of the culinary arts, but it has become one of my favorite things to do. My absolute favorite thing in the world is cooking/baking something and someone saying, "That's incredible." I'm also a psychology major, so I'm thinking that I'll bake for my patients when I begin my practice. :)
My favorite things to cook
Pies, both sweet and savory. Everything else comes in second.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Green bean casserole, Banoffee, Peanut Butter Fudge (that I have not mastered yet),
My cooking triumphs
O'Brien potatoes, most pies, most muffins, among various entrees. Unfortunately, you can only cook the same thing so many times until it gets boring, so it's a constant adventure to find more material.
My cooking tragedies
Shortbread. Rice. I'm slowly getting better at cooking different kinds of meat.
