I've mastered some basic meals in the kitchen and love finding new staples to add to our dinner menus. I have come to love cooking and baking and spending my time preparing delicious things!
My favorite things to cook
Dinners, because I think they are such a bountiful staple. I love being able to 'put good food on the table.'
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom mom's lasagna at Christmas, potato casserole and cheese and broccoli casserole at family gatherings and spinach dip with pumpernickel bread at parties!
My cooking triumphs
Making pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and chocolate cake for Christmas and having everyone swoon over it. It was the first time I ever brought food for the holidays as a young adult. So rewarding!
My cooking tragedies
Making 'potato gnocchi' when I was a REAL beginner. Let's just say after three hours and giant gooping lobs of mush in a pot I was crying my eyes out. Luckily, my S.O. was there to comfort me and to tell me I'll get it next time and that there is always pizza! :)
