It's finally starting to dawn on me that in just 6 days, I'll be in Easton, Pennsylvania for a three week crash course in ethical biology. Aka summer camp for nerds. There will still be campfire s'mores and ultimate frisbee, but most of the campers will
be bilingual and a high enough SAT score…
I discovered this site one morning when I had been craving french toast and the family was not yet awake to help me out. Until that day I had never really known what french toast was made from. I don't think I've been this addicted to a site since my childhood Neopets obsession.
My favorite things to cook
desserts of course
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a french catholic who married into an old jewish family. As such, our holiday meals always consist of matzah ball soup and buche de Noelle; a truly devine combination.
My cooking triumphs
- poaching an egg all by myself
- receiving the most praise from anyone who prepared anything for this year's thanksgiving dinner (I made a lovely banana cake)
- preparing lunch for the occupants of an abused women's shelter in my neighborhood
My cooking tragedies
Omitting the sugar and doubling the vanilla from a batch of sour cream pancakes. Never has an attempt at healthy cooking gone so utterly wrong.
