I'm newly married and just learning how to cook for two (instead of scrounge around the refrigerator to feed myself, like I've done for the last ten years). I live in a small town in Utah but love to travel to Europe and all over the U.S.
My favorite things to cook
I love to do anything in a slow cooker, canning and making cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is originally from the Czech Republic and I have so many memories of traditional Czech dinners at the holidays but I especially love the cookies my mom would always make for us to make into plates for our friends and neighbors.
My cooking triumphs
It's a triumph any time my husband doesn't say "This is good, honey, but maybe next time you could/not...."
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made banana bread I read the recipe wrong and instead of 2 teaspoons of salt, I added 2 tablespoons of salt. Not good.
