My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially at Christmas time! My favorites are gingerbread men and brownies. I love finding new ideas for preparing meat and fish on allrecipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone in our family cooks. My mom is a recipe collector, and follows recipes to the "T". My dad loves to use 5 or 6 recipes and create his own version. My husband gets in the kitchen and who knows if supper will be a really odd mix, or an amazingly well put together meal. Me, I fall in the middle of it all!
My cooking triumphs
I once made a black forest cake from scratch; it took a lot of work but was worth it. My homemade biscotti and molasses crinkles are family favorites.
My cooking tragedies
I added WAY too much apple cider vinegar to my squash soup - a soup that already tasted great before I messed around with it. It took my Dad and I a whole day to fix it with a lot of spices and a whole bunch of whole milk.
