Now that I've graduated and have started my first career I have more time to cook, and more money to buy different foods!
My favorite things to cook
I like baking, mostly during the holidays, but learning (somewhat)healthy and tasty dishes is always fun. My favorites include cookies, homemade granola bars, green bean dishes, stuffed mushrooms, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade french fries and beef stroganoff are two that come immediately to mind, but I guess any potato dish was a hit back home.
My cooking triumphs
The thanksgiving turkey I made in 2009. It turned out great, everyone loved it, and it made a great soup, too.
My cooking tragedies
Baking soda and baking power, not the same thing. Enough said ;)
