Tart Lemon Triangles!!! Ok so I'm very behind. It's been crazy. I actually made these last week but never got around to posting anything. So this week I'll do two desserts and
should be caught up then. Ok these were really really good, but they need more lemon flavor. The crust was really…
My name is Jessica and I live in MN. I live on a tiny lake with my mom. I'm very into organic foods and knowing where everything comes from. I love the idea that my milk and other foods come from local farms and are totally free from pesticides, hormones or any other additives. I try to eat very healthy and organic wherever I can. I mainly live on eggs, yogurt, milk, whole grains, protein and lots of veggies and fruit. But obviously I cheat a little if I love to bake ;) I try not to pick recipes with the highest rating on here to make. I try to "support" the smaller number ones, since we already know those high rated ones are good, I'll try something else. I have an adopted rescue dog from Kentucky, actually on the same day my niece was born, and shes a little over a year old. She's alot of fun but she is very naughty!
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is baking. Everyone I know always comes to me if they need something for an occasion. I love to bake cakes, cookies, bread, bars, pies, candies and anything else. My family loves that I love to bake since they get to eat everything. I usually end up experimenting with recipes and just try to make them healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always love to have one big family get together at least once a year. My family doesn't celebrate Holidays, so we have it at other times. It's usually at me and my moms place, and I ususally try to do all the cooking. I love the challenge of having to make 5 or 6 dishes and have them get done at the right time.
My cooking triumphs
Cream puffs, an awesome coconut cake I make......I don't really know of any really other triumphs.
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure theres loads of them but I can't really think of any that really stand out. Maybe I'm not so bad at this after all.....=D
