My name is Krysta Harder, I'm a newly married woman as of August 2009! I have a gift for creativity, which i love to use in the kitchen! I almost NEVER repeat a recipe, so this is the perfect site for me!
My favorite things to cook
I look for healthful recipe's or challenges. I also love to do baking that has a nice presentation or takes tedious work (such as fortune cookies. or other filled cookies)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite traditions... well, my favorite, is that i get to start my own traditions with my new family! so far, Enchelada's, Tzatziki, quasidilla's, and crepe's are regular's in our home, that NEITHER of us grew up with!
My cooking triumphs
In one weekend, i made for the first time: A chocolate marble cheesecake (first cheescake ever), pita's, and Tzatziki sauce! All of these first time attempts turned out beautifully!
My cooking tragedies
really really really really chewy fortune cookies were a bit of a tradgety... and i once made a chicken-a-la-king that curdled more than cottage cheese itself!
