Growing up, I was the baker of the household, and have always enjoyed it. I have been married for almost a year, and am facing the challenge of cooking every day for my husband and his large appetite! I work in a wedding/prom dress store as well as in a camp kitchen, helping prepare meals for up to 500 people!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of desserts, especially cookies, and eat them too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every birthday, our tradition is to make Sunshine Cake, which is a form of Angel Food cake, but much better! It's one of our family's old recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Last halloween, after seeing a photo on Allrecipes, I made a pumpkin cake shaped like a pumpkin. Although the icing was a bit runny, it really looked like a pumpkin. I presented it to my family-in law, and they were wowed (it tasted great too). I am so glad for this site and all the new ideas!
My cooking tragedies
I have many - because I like to experiment. Once I made Ammonia Cookies. The entire house smelled like ammonia, and the cookies tasted like it too! Had to throw them out for fear of them being poisonous.
