cooking is my therapy and stress relief!
grocery shopping is my absolute most favorite thing.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking - cookies, specialty cakes and pies, breads, etc. I usually tend to overcook so I'm trying to learn to cook for two instead of twenty. Basically if there's a recipe for it, i can make it - i'm very adventurous!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We've always made at least 10 different kinds of cookies for the Holidays - i'm continuing that tradition and have been baking them since i was about five! My dad and I have non-official competitions with each other to see how fancy a dish we can come up with "just for fun"!
My cooking triumphs
I've become adept at whipping up quick dinners off the top of my head - now if only i could remember what i put in half of them!
My cooking tragedies
i can be a bit distracted - i've boiled over my share of things cooking on the stovetop.
i'd have to say the real tragedy was last Christmas when i was trying to pull half-defrosted giblets out of a 24lb turkey while hungover. UGH!
