I'm learning to cook before I get married. I love to bake, and it's inspired me to go to culinary school. I'm super excited about that. They only gave me the option of picking southern food, but I have a real interest in Cajun/Creole cooking. This is some of the richest food you will ever eat! I've fallen in love with the cuisine here!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes!!! I'm hoping one day to own a bakery where I can create wedding cakes. Really, any baking is an interest there. I hope to try breads/rolls from scratch soon...I just like to bake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hodge-podge! Creating! I love that I can look in my pantry and find a meal, even if there is nothing there. My mother-in-law is always impressed when I do that.
My cooking triumphs
I have practiced creating my own wedding cake. I am very excited that I will get the chance to prepare it myself. The test came out wonderfully and my family can't wait until I try it out again!
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I ever made from scratch was not light and airy as it should have been...my guess is the baking powder was old and the cake never rised...it was horrible!!! (But, my family still ate the whole thing!)
