I've been cooking by myself since I was about 9 and have loved it ever since! I love to cook for my friends and family. I'll use just about any excuse to try a new recipe or cuisine!
My favorite things to cook
Chili, lasagna, cheesecake, salad, biscotti, soup, truffles, hummus, tabbouli, any veggie dish, lentil dishes, tofu dishes, honey spice cookies, granola
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cheese buttons(German ravioli)...served at Christmastime; Portzels(German fritters) and Shnitz soup for New Year's Eve
My cooking triumphs
Well most of my cooking is a triumph! I know that sounds concieted, but it's the honest truth! I've had some tradjedies though...and they tend to bad when they happen...hilarious...but bad!!!
My cooking tragedies
1 word sums it up...Kuchen... It's a German coffee cake and instead of dividing the dough up into 9 different baking dishes...I stuffed it all into 1! Since it's a yeast dough...one can imagine what happened! :P
