Being very busy, I don't always have time to cook. However, I have been inspired recently to pay more attention to what I put in my body and the best way to do that is to cook my own meals. I honestly find baking more relaxing but cooking is more necessary. Thus, I will be on this site more often!
My favorite things to cook
Inspired by my mother, I am trying very hard to make good bread. So far, I can make great white bread, but whole wheat is my downfall. But I enjoy the process, so bring on the bricks!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and grandmother make the most delishious yeast rolls that usually only make appearances at Thanksgiving and Christmas. When we were young, we were given limits to how many we could have.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first batch of the family yeast rolls for an office Thanksgiving lunch. They turned out just like my mom's (the best compliment!).
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever tried to brown ground beef, I was in someone else's kitchen and I used the wrong kind of pan. The meat scorched itself to the pan and I could never get it clean. It was very damaging to my teenage ego.
