I love cooking and seeing those I love thrilled with what I make. I've had Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was 14, so I've learned a lot of cooking shortcuts to save my hands -some of which don't work (see "Cooking Disasters). I enjoy trying new recipes from AllRecipes as well as cooking family staples.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom and I have "Cookie Mayhem" every year about a week or so before New Year's Eve. We spend the whole day making Kiffli and many other cookies. I look forward to it every year!
My cooking tragedies
Bread. No matter how many times I try, it never comes out right. With my condition (RA) I can't really knead, so I use my mixer with the dough attachment. I am determined to one day conquer this great white whale.
