I cook. It's fun for me.
My favorite things to cook
Truffles. Desserts of any kind really. Right now I'm interested in a more "sophisticated" cuisine, and hope to try out some new, more involved recipes. Orange-Teriyaki Beef with Noodles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potato Skin Sundays during football season. They're retired after the seaon unless we're doing poker.
My cooking triumphs
A fabulous baked pears in a red wine sauce that we did for New Year's 2007. It was UNBELIEVABLE.
My cooking tragedies
My 25th birthday cake. I don't know what happened. I've made hundreds of cakes, but for some reason I made this terribly dry and unappealing yellow cake. Thank goodness my hubby bought me a cake on his was home from work! He didn't want to because he thought I would probably make one, but he just thought it would be nice. PERFECT!
