I am a 30-something stay-at-home mom at the moment. I have been cooking since I was 8 years old.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake desserts, especially pies and crisps.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I bake mostly traditional foods. I'm Pennsylvania Dutch so I prefer foods from my natural heritage. However, I do like make Italian and Mexican foods too.
My cooking triumphs
My pies are highly rated. I make apple, peach, and blueberry pies. I make my own crust and everyone seems to really enjoy them.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't been able to make a good cheesecake for some reason; it's either undercooked or cracks from over cooking. Won't even try them anymore, ruined too many of them. (I just buy them at the store because they're one of my favorite desserts!) I can't make ice cream cake either. It never comes out right, go figure?
