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 Flemish(Dutch).
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
Trying to bake the perfect cake; still haven't quite mastered this. I still have problems putting the icing on a cake as well.
