Love to cook, love to eat. Repeat.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new! Lately, I've had fun with fondant icing, making my own cabbage rolls, and learning how to make tofu taste good!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making alligator bread with dad and painting my mom's Christmas cookies while listening to Raffi's Christmas music.
My cooking triumphs
Orchestrating my first complete Thanksgiving dinner: Turkey, vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes, stuffing, homemade gravy, and homemade cranberry sauce.
My cooking tragedies
Caramel syrup (sugar+water version) for panna cotta. Had to make it 3 times to get it right, and burned myself on the hot sugar a few times. Hot sugar is HOT! The end result was worth it though.
