Hello! My name is Corrine (but I go by Corrie) and I'm a recent transplant to the beautiful state of Arizona. I grew up in a small town in Eastern Washington, and relocated to Tucson to be with my fiance after my first marriage broke up. I enjoy the Southwest more than I thought I would and am learning to love foods I never did before - anything with avocado being a big one!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake...I made Mel's Magnificent Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday and loved them. Cakes and quick breads are also high on my list. I cook for a guy that loves to eat, so pasta is high on the list, as are casseroles and anything that comes together quickly and tastes good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will always remember Thanksgiving and Christmas fondly - making pies and cookies with family and friends in my parents' kitchen...endlessly rolling out batter for fattigmann, frying them and dusting them with powdered sugar.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made homemade pudding and had it turn out perfectly, I was more pleased with myself than I thought possible! I also remember the first time I made a bundt cake (and had it turn out of the pan looking just like the picture)...I was more proud of myself than I thought was possible.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally mistaking a cup of sugar for a cup of flour when I was making roux for potato soup.
