My favorite things to cook
Anything for desserts. I can cook on the grill, in the broiler, and stovetop, but still, my favorite thing to make is all desserts.
My cooking triumphs
My father used to brag about a cookie that my Great Grandma used to make. I begged her daughter for the recipe (which was difficult, since grandma measured in handfuls and eyeing), and attempted to make it myself. I thought they were absolutely delicious, but they were an extremely difficult cookie to make without seeing someone make it first.
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger, I could never remember what it meant to cream sugar, so for awhile, I used to melt the butter before I added the sugar, and my mom always wondered why my recipes didn't turn out quite like they were supposed to.
