I'm a long time baker(my first love) who also loves to cook. I am a recent newlywed so I am getting to cook a lot more often than I used too.
My favorite things to cook
I am a dessert person though I do love regular cooking. My favorite types of desserts to make are cakes, cupcakes and pies. I love to try new things. When it comes to regular cooking I love to cook fish, also fried sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
MY great grandmother is the best cook ever. After she died a family member actually made up a book of her recipes for everyone in our family. Her Mile High Lemon Pie is a family legend.
My cooking triumphs
When I perfected my fried sweet potatoes recipe, that was a personal triumph. Also I have a buttermilk devils food cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting that my friends and family call my famous cake and have even had people try to pay me to make it.
My cooking tragedies
I have been cooking/baking since I was really young. The only real tragedy I remember was when I was 7 and my sister and I threw all the chocolate cookie ingredients in a bowl together at once then made one big cookie. It was very soupy before it went in the oven, after well it was very inedible.
