I have not cooked a lot since becoming single about 5 years ago, but I used to whip up the most delicious soups and deserts for dinner parties and other festivities! I am a vegetarian so I like to make food that is interesting and tasty, as well as fulfilling and healthy. I live in Newburyport, MA, a wonderful historic seaport just 30 miles north of Boston. As a single person for the last 5 years I hardly did any cooking at all, but now I am re-teaching myself. At first, many of my tries failed, but perseverance prevailed and alas, my cooking and baking skills have improved immensely! I cannot wait till I meet someone special to make meals with and share in festive baking, and eating freshly baked cookies in bed...:)
My favorite things to cook
I like to make soups, vegetarian meals, cakes, torts, pies, cookies, and candy. I like holiday cooking, and summer cooking. I like to make healthy casseroles that last a few meals. I like to host dinner parties and share nice food, fine wine and good talk and laughs with my friends and family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mac n Cheese, Shephards pie, chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies. All the comfort foods, I know :)
My cooking triumphs
I once make a Vienna tort once. Mmm mmm mmm!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a special birthday cake for myself last summer and it just didn't work! The batter was delish, the frosting tasted dreamy, but I had to toss it out as it just fell completely apart! Went to super market and bought cake there ! :)
