OK I like good food . . . and I'm learning that to get food the way I like it I'm going to have to make it myself. I often find cooking tedious. I hate waiting and guesswork, but I like being able to have what I want when I'm done.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies. They're an active and best cooked a minimal amount of time in my opinion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is an amazing cook. She started when she was really young, so I could never quite follow when she tried to teach me to. I hope someday to have the skills to learn some of her skills
My cooking triumphs
I make awesome cake, specifiacally buttercream frosting. I can improvise with flavors and make fillings and everything else.
My cooking tragedies
Venison flipped too often and cooked but still white with flour and corn served raw because my instructions were "cook until yellow." I'm lost without a recipe and pretty intimidated by the stovetop.
