Avid fan of many hobbies. I love running and working out, taking long walks with my husband, music, dance, sports, photography, sewing, and, obviously, cooking and baking! I'm almost always up for learning a new skill.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying to make new foods. We are close-to-vegetarians, so I love cooking all-veggie meals. I'm trying to learn how to develop a palate, so I try to season everything based on my own taste. But above all, I love baking. It's just so fun and you can't wait to eat it when it's done! I can't wait to expand my family so I have more excuses to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None really so far, but I can't wait to create some once I have children with whom I can share my kitchen! Probably will be based around holidays, though. We don't do "typical Tuesday" meals or anything. Too much routine bums me out.
My cooking triumphs
I can bake a mean cookie. And awesome veggie-packed stews. I've even converted my husband to a soup and stew lover.
My cooking tragedies
My husband and I had moved across the country just weeks prior to Thanksgiving. It was our first big holiday that we could create our own way. I was really excited to prepare our Thanksgiving 'feast' (if you can call it that for two people). My chocolate mousse was killer, but my baked cornish hen died on impact.
