I am 29 years old and love cooking! I try to make a different home-cooked meal every night. I also love baking. On the weekends is when I usually will get out my pans and bake cookies, bars or cakes. My husband enjoys eating, so we're a great match!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything with sauces. I enjoy making sauces the most. My favorite would have to be alfredo sauce. I found a good recipe (on this site) for shrimp alfredo with red pepper and mushrooms. Absolutely delectable!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking around the holidays. A weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas, my sister and I will get together and bake about 20 different kinds of Christmas cookies! I also enjoy making any kind of holiday meal.
My cooking triumphs
I bake for the County Fair every year. Two years ago I took home the Chocolate contest award for my Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake.
My cooking tragedies
I was reading a recipe for a double chocolate cake and misread the chocolate ingredients. The ganache frosting called for a pound of chocolate. Instead, I put the pound of chocolate in the cake recipe. What turned out was not cake, but some of the most chocolatey brownies ever!
