Hi all, just making one last blog post. My supporting membership expires on May 5 and I will most decidedly not be renewing. I am still around from time to time trying and reviewing recipes (when I am not too lazy to cook) but that is the extent of it.
And since so many of you were so supportive
I'm mostly a baker but I like cooking too - now that I've moved out on my own, I am starting with the challenge of cooking for one with little freezer space to make stuff ahead or freeze leftovers. Wish me luck!
My favorite things to cook
For baking, definitely love cookies and brownies/bar cookies, have gotten into doing pies more recently. Have dabbled in some cake decorating, but it's not my forte. For cooking, pastas, stir frys, chicken!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only 'tradition' I can think of is helping my grandmother with her cannoli shells at Christmas. My job is rolling the dough around the cannoli tubes. This past year I also helped with the cream filling :)
My cooking tragedies
No big tragedies, really. One semi-recent incident with chocolate oatmeal muffins coming out of the oven looking like and tasting like hockey pucks (still can't figure out why!) Also have had a few buttercream fails, buttercream is my nemesis.
