34 year old grad student in Psychology. You'd think that wouldn't give me much time to cook, but you'd be surprised!
My favorite things to cook
Bread, both yeast and quick breads, particularly sweet ones due to my never-ending sweet tooth. Have never gotten good at cookies, though. Everyone else's chocolate chip cookies taste better than mine. I probably think too much about them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christimas cookies, old German traditionals. I love making pfeffernusse each year, but have to hide them every time to let them age properly before I start munching them!
My cooking triumphs
The three tiered wedding cake I offered as a gift to a friend. Truly a triumph - much better than most bakery cakes because it was moister, each layer infused with a liqueur syrup. Yum!!!
My cooking tragedies
Beef consomme that I labored for hours on, only to have it mistaken for "dirty potato water" by my brother cleaning up the dinner dishes.
Plus, every batch of chocolate chip cookies I try to make, as indicated above! :)
