I know that I'm young, but I grew up baking with my grandma, and helping my dad with dinner. So, I've been able to cook since I could stand on a step-stool to help.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer baking. It always seems more satisfying to me. But, I do like to learn new things, and try things that others recommend.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes cakes - so I do what I can to help her out. But, I love her Chestnut Stuffing that she only makes for the holidays. She makes that, and I always make peanut butter blossoms.
My cooking triumphs
Cookies seem to be best for me. I remember that in one night my mom and I made about 500 cookies. I was about done with cookies for a long time!
My cooking tragedies
Burning a homemade pizza or my peanut butter blossoms! I've also just had some bad batches. I believe that if you're not happy when you make something, it just won't taste as good.
