Living in Europe, which was a childhood dream of mine. Taking a break from working and going to school. I can speak two languages now; English and Dutch. I am currently trying to master the French language.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to bake/cook are pizzas, pasta dishes and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My American family is a "meat and potato" family. They must have this everyday. As a kid, I found this to be too boring, so now I am constantly experiementing in my kitchen. My Belgian family loves their meals simple and not so heavy, however, they do enjoy my chocolate desserts. Some American desserts and dishes are too heavy for them. :(
My cooking triumphs
My cheescakes and sugar cookies are the best.
My cooking tragedies
French macarons. I would like to make a perfect batch every time. Sometimes the batch is good and sometimes......ugggg!
