I am currently a wife, living in a small apartment and dying for a real kitchen in an actual house. My mother taught me baking when I was very young, and grew up making bars and pies regularly. However, I didn't learn meal cooking until moving in with my picky eater husband.
My favorite things to cook
California Dream Bars, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, chili, hungry man dinner, fried steaks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
French Silk pie for a bake sale. I doubled the recipe, and spent 40 straight minutes beating eggs. Turned out wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
My husband is a very picky eater, and doesn't like just about everything I cook. So I have noone but myself to enjoy my food.
