My kitchen is my favorite room in the house, primarily because I am the one who uses it most. My Mom, Step Mother, and Grammie all loved to cook and so as a result I got it from them.I am an excellent baker and love to cook for a crowd. Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are my favorite holidays because I get to cook up a storm!
My favorite things to cook
Lot's of things. I love making homemade yeast and quick breads. I make a mean chocolate tart and a belgian chocolate ganache filled cake. Roasts, sautees, cheesecakes, thai food, casseroles. Just about everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving I start planning months ahead of time. It is my favorite holiday. My family is scattered so my husband and I have all of our friends come down and we feast on Ham, cider-brined turkey, bruleed sweet potatoes, and much much more. A feast fit for a king!!!
My cooking triumphs
Impressing everyone with all my pastries. My husband's birthday cake last year was a knock out and didn't look wharped!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 12, my step sister and I somehow burnt the spagetti sauce and it tasted like cigarette butts!
