I love to try new recipes! My fiance and I do not eat many sweets so the desserts are limited to holidays although I love to bake.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking...my favorite thing to cook is main dishes, banana bread and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We rarely use measuring cups...a little bit of this and a little bit of that. My family enjoys potluck gatherings and old fashioned cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Decided to make a carrot cake from scratch for a benefit auction. I did not realize how much work that was!! It was worth it though, it brought $30 at the auction. My first time bread making turned out very well, almost like my mother's and grandmother's; almost.
My cooking tragedies
Oh my, out on my own and couldn't make gravy to save my life. It took me at least two years to get it down. I also quickly learned to adjust ingredients to have a better outcome. I'm a blond by the way...
