Not much to say: I'm obsessed with food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in small towns where you could turn off the house lights and see every star in the sky. Every year, around the Perseids in August, my mom and I would make coffee cake. Then, after nightfall, we took our cake out onto the back porch with blankets, and watched the meteor shower for hours.
My cooking triumphs
A friend of mine told me that I am his hero and he really respects me for being an amazing cook who is unafraid to experiment in the kitchen, among other things. It tickled me pink.
My cooking tragedies
Four or five years ago I burnt a batch of chili - I went looking online for a fix and found the popular 'add peanut butter' solution. I tried it, it didn't work. My husband and I ate peanut butter chili for the next week.
