Some people plant the food. Other people prepare it. I'm the latter!
My favorite things to cook
Pancakes, waffles, cookies, cakes, all kinds of baking. Bread machine recipes, muffins, homemade tortillas. Homemade ice cream. Soups, potato salad, healthy vegetarian meals, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have gotten away from my family's traditional Italian cooking, mainly because of becoming a vegetarian and also loving to explore the wealth of wonderful recipes on the internet. My favorite family recipes would have to be lasagne, cannoli, my Mom's bread pudding.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I successfully made homemade bread and the dough actually rose! Making my own wedding cake. People telling me I am a good cook and baker.
My cooking tragedies
When the frosting on two tiers of a wedding cake I made started to slide down cuz it was hot (I fixed it - whew!). My first cake I learned how to make from cooking class in school - I made it at home - a friend of our family was the first to taste it - he got an awful expression on his face - I had left out the sugar!
