I'm a college student who moved away from mom's cooking and thus learned how to cook to save myself from a diet of Ramen noodles.
My favorite things to cook
I love vegetables and pasta, so mixing those together is fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking my Oma's traditional German potato pancakes, and cooking our Christmas dinner of snacks and appetizers instead of a full meal!
My cooking triumphs
Moving from 400 ft elevation to 5,000 ft elevation required me to learn about high elevation baking! It is quite a surprise when your traditional CC cookies melt into blobs in the oven!
My cooking tragedies
Using low elevation baking recipes at high elevations. I also tried to make Chicken parm one night, and I added too much tomato sauce (which I made too watery) and my chicken parm turned into fried chicken patties floating in tomato soup. It was horrible!
