I've been baking since I was about 12 (Im in my mid 30s now) and enjoy trying new and challenging recipes but I also like the quick and easy recipes that fill the freezer for unexpected guests.
Recently I decided to start my own blog to share my experiences. Please feel free to check it out at www.bakersquest.com. Share your comments and suggestions as I'm always interested in the advice of others who enjoy baking and cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, muffins, cupcakes, and loaves are my forte; however, I have recently started baking breads and rolls and have had some good successes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom would always make a full course meal even after coming home from a long day at work. She always told me that when she got married she couldn't even boil water but now she makes her own filo pastry and makes the best cabbage rolls I've ever tasted.
My cooking triumphs
I have made some really interesting cakes for special family events. Check them out on my blog at www.bakersquest.com.
My cooking tragedies
My initial attempts at bread were terrible; however, with the advice of my sister-in-law and mother-in-law (as well as some good recipes) I've started having some real successes in this area.
