I am a weirdo who cooks to relax.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake. Deserts, cakes, cookies, pies, cheese cakes and such. I also like to cook other stuff. Italian, German, comfort food, southern fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have 3 daughters and 1 son. My daughters do not share my love of cooking, but my son and I both love to make up recipes and try new things. He and I can both make a meal from stuff in the cupboard.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make New York style cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I am torn between the bread exploding in the bread machine and putting baking soda in a cookie instead of baking powder.
