I love baking, baseball, and Bach :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook meals and desserts for others, especially family. Hearty, home-made, comfort foods and tempting desserts are my favorites!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great-grandmother made some incredible cinnamon rolls, and no matter how hard we try ours just can't compare. My grandmothers always made everything from scratch. My mom has always been encouraging and experimental in the kitchen so I always felt free to try new things. Growing up, we'd make Sunday breakfast together after church - I made eggs, my brother the pancakes, and my parents the bacon. At Thanksgiving, my grandpa always gave me a hard time about peeling potatoes (there'll be nothing left if you keep doing it like that!), and my grandma always made the gravy from pan drippings. She's teaching me now but it sure is a craft, and I'm still working on it. My husband is also a great cook and has a wonderful knack for combining flavors. My family spends a lot of time together in the kitchen.
