I am a "recipe" cook. I can follow a good recipe and always make it better. I would like to one day try to "create my own recipes". I find reinventing the wheel only fun when necessary-
My favorite things to cook
Pantry staples + fresh ingredients + (the potential of burning things) = match made in heaven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am not quite a family- just me. so far it consists of salads and eggs and breakfast items for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
bread. without a bread maker. :-)
My cooking tragedies
adding rum instead of rum extract to rum raisin cake.
