I am graduating college this coming April. I love to read, cook, bake, take naps, and play Guitar Hero. :) I love anything landscape. I am thrilled to be able to have a garden once I get back home. :) Fresh grown vegetables and herbs. Oh yes!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make goodies! Cookies, cakes and basically any dessert. I also love making really delicious dinner and have people over for dinner. It is always so much fun to just cook for friends and family! I have recently discovered the joys of shortbread and empanadas. My brother is serving his mission in Argentina and so I love to try Argentine food. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
All time favorite family cooking tradition would THE Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes. My grandpa had a special way of making them and taught only a few of his grandchildren his secret. :) We have been making them exactly the same since he passed away a few years ago. His tradition lives on! And of course there is my mother dear's delicious Apple Pie, Peanut Butter Supremes, and
My cooking triumphs
One of my cooking triumphs is kind of lame but amazing for me, was a cheesecake! I have always wanted to make one but never had a springform pan. So I just splurged and bought and set and made one for a dinner group. It was amazing. SO DELICIOUS!
Another cooking triumph was making apricot jam in my college apartment. I have always canned at home but this was a first and quite amazing feat to do it in my tiny college apartment. And it actually turned out good!
My cooking tragedies
The only tragedy I can think of would be when I tried to make Oatmeal Bread and it didn't rise very well. :(
