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… MORE

I'm like a little kid still when it comes to Christmas, I get super excited. Last weekend was tree-decorating weekend. I went to my parents' house and my mom and I put their tree up (ok, my dad literally put it up, but then he disappears and leaves the ornament-hanging to the women-folk). One… MORE

... But I'm sure I'm not the only one! I am talking about MY DREAM KITCHEN! Really, I can't be the only one (of us here, anyway) who thinks about this. I don't really think about any other rooms in my fictional dream house, I am focused on my kitchen. Every time I find myself annoyed with some… MORE

Lots of us here have lamented about picky eaters (me too, if anyone has heard me talk about my brother!), some admit to being picky eaters themselves, and many have said that they just won't stand for picky eaters and insist that what they make gets eaten. But don't we all have a little bit… MORE

Hi AR people! I'm a bit tardy with this as a lot of you had asked me to take more pictures of my not-so-new-anymore place when it was more in order. I've been still working on it slowly, and it's really coming together now, decorative wise. Still not complete, I still need something for above… MORE

I'm actually about three weeks late with this ode to my precious, as it was just before New Year's last year when we were brought together. Oh I can just remember how my heart soared with joy when the FedEx man rang the doorbell. My preciousssss Yes I have had my KitchenAid mixer for just… MORE

I've been on my own in my new place for two weeks now and it's getting a little easier and little less sad every day! Maybe helped along by the fact that my parents and aunts have come over every weekend, and I've gone to parents' house both Friday nights! Bit weird that terminology, having… MORE

Well I am pretty much moved in to my new place! I'm happy and excited but sad too. I've been trying to quash any sad feelings and just take deep breaths and focus on the good parts, but today was hard when I woke up in my bedroom at my parents' house for the last time, the bedroom I've slept… MORE

Barely a week into September and I'm finding myself thinking about, and getting excited for... Christmas baking! I know, I know, it's crazy but it's my only chance every year for a big baking extravaganza! I make stuff year round, sure... but one thing at a time. I don't like to go too crazy… MORE

Those of you who frequent the Buzz and ever read my comments/posts will know that my 20 year old brother is an insanely picky eater. This is usually not TOO much of a hardship on me as I usually only cook dinner once every 1-2 weeks, as my dad is the main cook in the house (yes I surely am… MORE

About Me
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.
