I started cooking in college, when I lived in a house with 15 and then 24 other people. It took awhile to learn to cook for only a few people! Would like to learn fancier dinners and also tackle yeast breads.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, mainly cookies and cakes, and soups, especially anything thick and hearty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's side is Slovak, so they're always good for Pascha bread and pierogies.
My cooking triumphs
My husband loves my corn chowder and quickbread.
My cooking tragedies
Fat-free pumpkin muffins with every substitution imaginable. They were so rubbery, they bounced!
