I grew up a very picky eater, but I made a conscious decision several years ago that I didn't want to be picky anymore. I recently married the picky eater man in my life, who isn't so anxious to give up his old ways. My cooking is slowly bringing him back down to earth, and he has tried (and discovered that he likes) many new foods. I love to cook, and I love to alter recipes to suit our unique tastes.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods, both full-fat and lower-fat versions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas when I was younger, we had ebelskievers for breakfast at my grandparents' house before opening presents.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first full Thanksgiving dinner for the family at age 15!
My cooking tragedies
When I was little, I made a peanut-butter-and-Froot-Loop sandwich, with a hamburger bun as the bread. Ick.
