I'm 25 years old, single mother to one and caretaker for my 75 year old father. I've always loved art, food, and science, so it only makes sense that I enjoy baking because it combines several of my favorite things.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian food of any kind, and any kind of baked good. My favorite recipes are always new successful recipes. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my mom. We had cakes or cookies almost every night. Helping out with Thanksgiving dinner when I was younger.
My cooking triumphs
Anything and everything I manage not to burn while juggling a two year old and a man with the mind of a two year old!
My cooking tragedies
The very first time I ever cooked a meal for my family, I made spinach enchiladas. I was anxious about doing a good job to the point where I completely forgot to season the enchilada filling... not even any salt. My family ate the entire batch to humor me. They weren't bad, they just weren't good either. ;)
