My husband and I love to cook, bake and eat. We like trying new recipes that liven up our meals. I started baking cakes in 2009 and am expanding from family and friends to selling them (check out some of my pictures). I'm a PSU graduate and miss going to tailgate's (always good food there)!
My favorite things to cook
I like baking cakes, cookies or anything with chocolate in it! I've tried a few icing recipes from scratch and they've turned out great! I like to cook chicken, pasta, chili, barbecued pulled pork and enjoy using my crock pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma has all her recipes memorized and has passed most of them down to my mother, who also has them memorized. I need to learn these recipes, such as, a gob cake and icing, potato soup with dough balls in it and how to make my gram's tomato sauce.
My cooking triumphs
As I stated in my favorite things to cook, barbecued pulled pork and chili. This was amazing! I got the recipe from a co-worker and will never try another. I love to bake and for my wedding baked over 800 cookies for a "cookie bar" which served as the hors d'oeuvres (my gram and mom made about 1,000 combined). I found some great cookie recipes doing this!
My cooking tragedies
I've never had a tragedy that I can remember...
