I love to try new recipes and turn them into my own with changes. I also like to try new fare at a restaurant and try to duplicate it at home based on taste.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, soups, appetizers & desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Dessert Night. We invite friends and family to Dessert After Christmas dinner. I always include some tried and true items along with brand new entries. I ask guests to rate the new recipes.
Another favorite is delivering "Severed Finger" butter cookies as a psychotic baker during Halloween.
My cooking triumphs
I finally entered the Pillsbury Bake-off in 2007.
My cooking tragedies
I didn't place in the Pillsbury Bake-off. :(
I'll try again in 2009.
