My favorite things to cook
Anything I haven't tried to cook before. I also LOVE to bake desserts and pies and am learning how to make excellent pie crusts, pizza crust, bread, and cakes. Getting the dough just right for these homemade things is the trick!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any, so I'm starting my own.
My cooking triumphs
I just cooked my fourth Thanksgiving turkey, with great success! Several people kept nibbling on it all night long. I taught myself everything I know pretty much. I'm also proud of helping two of my roommates get started cooking and experimenting, and they have since found they are great at cooking as well!
My cooking tragedies
When I began cooking and experimenting I made an italian pie for my brother and sister that burnt. I hardly ever see them and they still think that I'm an awful cook; my sister still talks about how "gross" the italian pie was. My mom also laughs at me when I tell her I can cook (she lives far away too) even though everyone that knows me LOVES my cooking!
