My favorite things to cook
I have a Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookie recipe that I have had since I was about 10 years old. I have spent years perfecting the recipe and I can make it flawlessly and just about perfect every time. I have shared this recipe with so few people because they never make it the same! I love to make cookies the most. They're easy to whip up and serve to some hungry boys who crave it! (aka my husband and brother in law!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's Apple Pie - to which I have now adopted the tradition since she doesn't make pies anymore.
I've also adopted my mom's secret Apple Crisp recipe. It took 3 years of figuring out her recipe, but I've got it down to an art now. And because of that, It's expected I bring it to every family function. Opps! haha!
My cooking triumphs
Cookies and pasta have always been successful for me.
I'm always super impressed when I accomplish hard-to-make recipes or anything that's very time consuming. Makes it all seem worth it.
My cooking tragedies
My cake ideas are always more ambitious then what's practical. My cakes always turn out well, just the decorating needs a little more work. I don't make cakes too often, so I guess I'm just out of practice ;)
