I'm a college student at the University of Missouri in Columbia, but I've been cooking since I was in grade school.
My favorite things to cook
Baked sweets, mostly, especially things which require a lot of detail. I also enjoy making comforting "homestyle" food reminiscent of large family gatherings or holidays
My favorite family cooking traditions
German gingerbread every Christmas, smoked salmon during the summer
My cooking triumphs
Boston cream pie that didn't fall apart, cookie boquets, asparagus that tastes good
My cooking tragedies
I took chocolate chip cookies out of the oven too soon and placed them onto a wire cooling rack, and all the cookies crumbled between the wires!
