I'm really more of a baker than a, um, cooker. My boyfriend is a professional cook, so it works out in the end! The only other things of note are that I love my cats, I love my horse, and I love to read medieval literature and books about medieval culture.
My favorite things to cook
Turnovers. I love to cook turnovers, especially savory ones. I also enjoy experimenting with bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Boiled custard at Christmas, my grandmother made it every year. She also made a killer coconut cake.
My cooking triumphs
Dating a guy that is a phenomenal cook. Seriously. I never knew it could be this way :P
My cooking tragedies
My first few pie crusts. It took awhile to get the feel for it, but it was totally worth the time and effort. Wheat bread would have to be the second serious mistake - all I could churn out were bricks.
