My favorite things to cook
Anything my family will eat! We're always trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm an Army brat, so my parents collected a wide variety of dishes to pass on to us. Some favorites are homemade marinara, enchiladas, and Yaki-Mandu.
My cooking triumphs
I'm gaining confidence with homemade yeast breads, and getting better at canning. I'm finally learning that basic, proper tools make a world of difference.
My cooking tragedies
I think the saddest project was homemade watermelon jelly. The recipe was perfect, but something happened to the pot and flaky bits of teflon ruined the whole (huge) batch. Lesson learned! Nothing but stainless steel for us now.
