I'm not really a cook, I just follow directions well.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking new things so I spend a lot of time on this site!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each December my in laws get together for a baking day. 6 hours later, we have covered three 8' tables with cookies and candies for holiday gifts. My only problem is convincing my husband to let me give some away!
My cooking triumphs
I received the highest compliment around. My dad told me I made the best lasagna he has ever tasted.!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to bake my first cake from scratch, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. I put the pans in the oven and told my husband to watch them while I jumped in the shower. He came running in about 10 minutes later. The mix had overflowed causing a big smokey mess in the oven. I was ready to call it quits but he scraped and salvaged the cakes. I tried a piece and it was definitely not worth the trouble! I'm sticking to my boxed cake mixes from here on out.
