I have been married for almost 4 years. I am looking forward to buying my first house in Texas this summer. I learned to cook when I was in Middle School and have been cooking ever since. I lived in London for 3 years and love to mix what I learned in Europe about cusine with my knowledge from America.
My favorite things to cook
I am a big cake person.
I also love Italian and Mexican food.
Desserts are my favorite to eat, but I also love to cook them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned how to make Canadian Butter Tarts from my mom who learned from her mom, and so on. I always cook these at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I made Thanksgiving Dinner for myself, my husband, and our two best friends from England (One of whom is a professionally trained chef). Everyone loved it. The menu included: Turkey, Cornbread stuffing, Mashed Potatos, Gravy, Spinach casserole, Pumpkin Pie from scratch, and Cranberry Bananna Bread. I was tired, but it was worth it!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to bake in my terrible stove that was in my first flat in London was a disaster. I was making a cake for work. The outsides cooked too much and the middle was still soggy. I quickly learned that if I wanted to bake in that oven, I needed to do small thin cakes.
