I've been cooking since I was in grade school. I come from a long line of good cooks, so I'm trying to keep the tradition going! I've taught myself a lot about cooking just through trying new recipes and reading food blogs.
I also belong to a small cooking forum of women that share friendship and a love of cooking. If you're interested in joining, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
My favorite things to cook
I have a sweet tooth, so baking is my favorite thing to do in the kitchen. I've also been decorating cakes for 10 years or so and in the past few years I've been doing more with cupcake and cookie decorating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas baking! I love making cut-out sugar cookies, christmas candy, fudge, etc. My daughter celebrated her first Christmas last year and it was a blast, even if she was too young to help with the baking. I can't wait until she's old enough to decorating cookies with me!
My cooking triumphs
I made my husband's groom's cake for our wedding. It featured the university we both attended. It was a big hit!
My cooking tragedies
I had a run of bad luck with pies for awhile. Soggy crusts, separated fillings, burnt meringues...luckily I'm getting better.
