In the evening as a reward for completing a day successfully I love to have a dessert usually with chocolate milk. This has become somewhat of a ritual, and probably a hadicap for my social life. Heaven help me and who ever is with me if my treat is dissappointing...
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate chip cookies, dessert bars, cakes, anything sweet except pie! I hate pie!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dad and I make fudge every holiday and take great joy in bringing it to relatives homes because it is so addictive that every year at least one diet is ruined!
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered the big best chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site. It really is the best. I make them even better than the Mrs. Field's cookies.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at cooking. For me its not worth the time and money, but one time as a new wife I attempted to make spaghetti and meatballs for my husband. Being thrifty I cut up some left over burgers for the "meatballs" and used the high proptein whole grain pasta. After one bite my husband refused to eat any more and the evening ended with insults being hurled back and forth.
