I'm a happy newly-wed, loving the chance to use all the cook kitchen gadgets and cookbooks I got as gifts. I will admit that my husband is a much better cook then I am but I plan to catch up.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, almost anything but I'm told I make a great Boterkoek (Dutch butter cake)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad loves to cook as does my step-mom. Her family are old-world Mennonite so the majority of what she makes is all from scratch. My mom is great at salads and my step-dad's awesome on the bbq.
My cooking triumphs
I made stew from scratch AND my step-mom's awesome Christmas Waffles and White Sauce
My cooking tragedies
I spent 24 hours trying to make a lemon Meringue pie only to DROP is as I was walking out the door. My dog sure enjoyed it.
