I'm a novice cook, but I'm trying to get better. I love to bake (and eat) anything as long as it doesn't have raisins. I despise raisins.
My favorite things to cook
Basically anything with pumpkin, chocolate, or peanut butter. I mostly love baking, but I'm getting better at cooking... at least I hope so.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every New Years Eve, my Mum would make a couple batches of the traditional Chex mix. Though we're all moved out, we still keep this tradition up. We also make cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning.
My cooking triumphs
I was really craving some macaroons but didn't like the ones offered in the stores. I decided to try my hand at a recipe from my cookie book & they turned out perfect! I also make a super awesome pumpkin spice bread... so good that I frequently double the recipe to make two loaves, one for now & one for later.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make lasagna - which is my favorite dish - & everything went wrong. If you didn't look at it, it tasted fine... it just looked like a miserable failure. One of these days I will conquer that dish!
