My favorite things to cook
Baking is theraputic for me, cookies, brownies, cakes, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hanukkah dinners with Latkes are the best!
My cooking triumphs
When interviewing for a sales position at Allrecipes I baked cookies from my favorite recipe on the site with a secret ingredient - pudding. Check out my recipe box for the famous recipe. To show the interviewing manager how passionate I was about the site, I made my favorite recipe and left the cookies with her to enjoy. Apparently, they were so delicious... they got me the job. :)
My cooking tragedies
I like to think I am quite the baker, and cookies/cakes are my specialty. Recently I planned a magnificent cake for a friends birthday, a four layered decadent cake of alternating chocolate fudge and vanilla debauchery with rich chocolate frosting. My chocolate cake so moist and lovely... crumbled. Good thing I had the vanilla cake to spare! The vanilla cake ended up being so light and fluffy, the top layer lifted with the icing and looked such a mess I was embarassed to bring and serve the MESS OF A CAKE. But it tasted delightful. :)
