I am a bit of a crazy American living in Bristol, England. I love baking! I bake most weekends and take my goodies into work with me to share! I adore cakes that are moist and succulent. English dry cakes do nothing for me! I am also a cat addict. I dont mind cooking main meals, I enjoy making fresh fajitas, curries, and casseroles.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make banana bread and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother doesnt know how to cook and when I left home, my fathers good-bye was the following, 'What are we going to do now that the cook has left?' My mothers idea of cooking is microwaving, I remember one Thanksgiving many many many years ago that my mother had to take all the bones out a whole turkey and get out a rubber mallet in order to fit the turkey in the microwave! Seriously!
My cooking triumphs
Dutch foods and cakes! Almost always turn out VERY well.
My cooking tragedies
They dont happen often, thankfully, but they are a true tragedy when they do happen!
