I just moved to Anchorage 6 months ago, and i"m enjoying the more diverse cultures. My roommate and are enjoying trying new recipes and planning house meals.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make pies and giving them as presents.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies! It's always fun because everyone in the family comes down to decorate and sample the "defective" cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Found a recipe for raisen pie that my grandpa said was better than his sister's, who had just passed away that year. Noone else knew how to make a raisen pie, so I was happy to be able to find one he liked.
My cooking tragedies
One christmas I had a whole list of cookie recipes to try out, and I couldn't get one to turn out how it should! GRR!
