My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I used to just say I love to cook and hated baking, however now I love both. My new favorite thing is cakes. I took a cake decorating class but got more into the baking aspect of it and am now the go to person for any occasion in my family for a cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition would be for my boyfriend's birthday. Every year I fix the same thing. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
My cooking triumphs
Probably my cakes, people seem to love them. So far I have done a black forest, itallian cream, and just chocolate with chocolate frosting. I have been eyeing some of the recipes for fourless cakes and think I may try one of them next time. My new triumph. I did a cheesecake this Thanksgiving. First time doing a "real" cheesecake. It was so awesome! I did the cheesecake supreme on this site and would reccomend it to anyone. It was so good.
My cooking tragedies
Um...Well one christmas I tried a creamed spinach recipe, and remember sneaking a taste before anyone else could try it, and yelling nobody eat the spinach...We all laughed. It seems like that happens to someone at every get together. I suppose we all like to try new things and sometimes they are a flop.
