I grew up helping my mother cook, and now that I am in college I have decided to follow a career path that will hopefully allow me to teach others to cook as well. I just got engaged to a wonderful man and I can't wait to spend forever with him! I mostly cook for him and his roommates and rarely do we have leftovers!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, but lately I've become adventurous and have been trying all kinds of new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are really an specific family recipes, but I love spending the holidays with my family. My mom and I always cook together during this time and it reminds me of my childhood.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking my first turkey for Thanksgiving 2008. It was nice and juicy.
My cooking tragedies
Making an apple brine for my first Turkey for Thanksgiving 2008. The basking bag that SAID it would hold the turkey and the liquid...DID NOT hold the turkey or the liquid. I'm still finding sticky spots in my kitchen from where the bag split and went everywhere.
