I was just going over all the wonderful recipes in my recipe box. I ran across a tried and true eggs benedict recipe I found last November. My boyfriend's birthday is in November and I took him out to a fancy breakfast to celebrate. His all time favorite
breakfast is eggs benedict with lox…
My name is Mollie. I'm 23 and currently living in Austin, Texas. I learned to cook when I was very young, helping my mother in the kitchen. I've always loved the feeling of pride and accomplishment after making a delicious meal or treat and sharing it with my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking pasta dishes! I have so much fun mixing flavors and trying out new ingredients in classic dishes. I also love cooking pastries and I'm currently learning how to make home-made mozzarella!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a huge extended family (59 aunts, uncles, and cousins!) and we all get together for Christmas eve at my grandparents house. Since there are so many of us, we all pitch in and bring an appetizer or treat to share. I love being in the kitchen with my family, all of us working on different dishes, sharing stories, listening to music, laughing and joking. The food always tastes better when we have fun making it together!
My cooking triumphs
I think my biggest cooking triumph was making cream puffs for the first time. I was still in high school when I found a recipe for cream puffs and was so excited about the idea of making them myself. The recipe called for techniques that I had never done before; using a double boiler, adding one egg at a time to the dough, I thought it sounded more like a chemistry experiment than a recipe! My kitchen was a disaster by the time I finished, but those cream puffs were perfect! Just the right size, fluffy and airy, and the custard filling was fantastic! After making those cream puffs, I felt like I could do anything!
My cooking tragedies
I once burnt a pot of soup...
