Anything I cook must be planned to use very little counterspace. Of course, if I run out of counterspace and something hits the floor, I have two dogs waiting anxiously to assist with the clean-up.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet! My grandmother gave me a big sweet tooth, passed down through my dad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always said if you mess up dinner, whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Warm cookies will make just about anything better. (Translation if you're a kid: no, you don't get to eat only cookies for dinner if you don't like what was originally cooked. You get to deal with whatever was cooked and when your plate is clean, warm cookies are your reward.)
