I am a university student that loves to bake in the wee hours of the night. For this reason, I generally gravitate towards recipes that are fast, but delicious. This site has been incredibly useful in my quest to become a seasoned baker- and maybe learn a thing or two about cooking. I would still consider myself a novice, but am looking forward to years of tantalizing treats and other "hard labor" :). Feel free to peruse my profile! I hope we can learn together!
My favorite things to cook
Muffins, cookies, brioches, pies, cakes, etc. Basically pastries of all sorts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love any holidays that are within the fall and winter seasons. Warm spices and flavors like: Nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice, are some of my favorite olfactory and gastronomical treats.
My cooking triumphs
I have found so many scrumptious recipes on this site that I have lost count.
My cooking tragedies
Thus far, I have been lucky to avoid any major cooking catastrophes. Simple mistakes like miscalculating measurements when doubling amounts have occurred (though rarely).
