About this Cook
I'm from the south, but my family's background is German. This has made an interesting mix in my personal recipe book. I love to bake for others and surpised them with a plate of goodies.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favorite, but if I had to choose I guess I would say my favorite is German apple pie. Mostly because I love to eat it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas provided some unique dishes. We always make German sourcream apple pie, pumpkin bread with white raisins baked in a coffee can, and lime jello salad. Those are my favs. Another tradition is milk gravy. YUM!
My cooking triumphs
My first french silk pie was huge for me. I was always certain it was going to be difficult and very time consuming. It turned out awesome!
My cooking tragedies
I was trying to dump chocolate cake out of its pan. Of course, only half came out and the rest stuck to the pan. I thought if I could get the other half out I could frost it and non one would know the difference. I broke the other piece trying to take it out. The more I tried to fix it the worse it got. I finally looked down and realized there as not enough frosting in the world to make that cake look ok. :)
