Not much to say, I'm trying to become a better cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes and bread. Next to that, I enjoy finding new and interesting ways to cook common vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional roast beef dinner with roast potatoes, roasted carrots and parsnips and steamed green beans all served with gravy and yorkshire pudding. The best thing about this meal is the roast beef sandwiches the next day. These are made with butter and ketchup.
My cooking triumphs
My only meal that people have asked for over and over again is a stupidly simple tuna casserole.
My cooking tragedies
One day I will make a Mississippi Mud Cake that does not destroy itself. The first time, the chocolate congealed into a goopy mess, I had to throw it away. The second time, I couldn't figure out why the chocolate had solidified when I added the sugar. Turns out I misread the recipe, when it called for 10 oz of strong coffee, they meant liquid, not powder. I had added 10 oz of espresso powder. That cake has become infamous as the insane caffeine cake. It was pretty awful.
