I love, love, love to cook! I love feeding people! I especially love to bake but I'm not big on sweets so I bake for others, they don't complain ; P
My favorite things to cook
Chicken In Basil Cream Sauce, Goulash (my family's take on it anyway), Pancakes, Mashed Potatoes, and as for baking, Pumpkin Rolls, cookies (sugar & snickerdoodle), Spice Cake Cupcakes, Apple Pie and Fruit Tarts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Butter and Salt LOL
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Pumpkin Rolls! Super hard but they've turned out great! I also felt pretty triumphant when I had guests over for dinner, after everyone agreeing they'd love some cookies for desert they were shocked when I pulled out the flour and they realized I didn't have premade cookie dough.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking I was making a seafood breakfast quiche from a recipe from Allrecipes and I did not realize that the pie crust it called for was different from the graham cracker pie crust you use in fruit pies.... It was super disgusting. Just think eggs with graham crackers bleh!
