My favorite things to cook
Baked goods. My favorite things to bake are cookies and sweet breads. I don't get into cakes, they are too emotional lol
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a single dad who didn't get home until 6-7pm but he always ook the time to make dinner for his kids. That has meant so much to me over the years and my husband and I always take the time every night to cook a good meal for our kids. It gives us a chance to be together in the kitchen, share recipes, try new things, and enjoy each other without the rest of the chaos that will follow for the rest of the evening.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate chip cookies. I tried for YEARS and always got flat hard cookies. After 10 years I finally found and modified a recipe that turns out perfect everytime!
My cooking tragedies
I made a breakfast casarole from a recipe one of the church ladies gave me one time... We fed it to the dog (shhh lol).
