I live near Cleveland and all of my favorite hobbies are a bit.. sedetary. Baking, crocheting, reading, and vidja games. Also I'm a terrible cook but I can bake like a champ.
My favorite things to cook
Baking anything that others will enjoy. I'm actually not a big fan of cookies or cakes (all sweet and no bite save gingerbreads), but everyone else around me is and I seem to bake well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies. We go crazy and scour for more cookie recipes every December. Butter press to deep fried, we lurve Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned this summer how to make pancakes! Eggs I can cook. For some reason I fail at pancakes.
My cooking tragedies
Most every other batch of pancakes.
