I'm 25 years old and newly married. I am not the best cook in the world, but I try and my husband is always happy with what I make. I prefer baking, but I try to make all different kinds of foods. Hoping to find lots of great recipes here!
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods mostly- breads, brownies, cakes, cookies, pies, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love baking a banana bread recipe that my mother-in-law has been using for years. One of the best banana breads any of us have ever had. I will be getting my great-grandma's butter tart recipe soon too so I can start making it since she is too weak to cook too much. Can't wait to make it for her!
My cooking triumphs
Of course I can't think of one because I am being asked. Whenever I create one of my "concoctions" and my husband asks me to make it again. I will think of some to put on here soon.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few. I remember awhile ago trying to make Raspberry Chocolate Truffles. I even had a recipe and followed it exactly and somehow I ended up with melted clumps of chocolate everywhere and raspberry jam all over myself. The chocolate was so melty and sticky that I couldn't even form them into balls. You could see the lumps of jam in the chocolate clumps. It looked gross and even though I am sure it tasted ok, I would not serve it to anyone. I tossed them all in the trash. That was fun! HA HA!
