transplant to the Charleston SC area from Michigan. Loving the weather and excellent souther and fresh seafood cuisine!
My favorite things to cook
Family recipe for chocolate cake, baked goods of all kind, quiche, pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The family cake recipe requires 3 holes in the dry batter before adding the wet ingredients. It's a family joke now when something goes wrong, the response is 'did you make the three holes?'
My cooking triumphs
My first quiche turned out excellent, despite not having a pie pan. I used a round cake pan. Turns out deep-dish quiche is really great!
My cooking tragedies
Boiled peanuts! It took a whole day for them to turn out good and then I forgot to turn the slow-cooker off for two days! The mess was terrible!
