Cooking has been a big part of my life as long as I can remember. I learned to cook by watching my mom in the kitchen. As I got older, we switched places. I love trying new foods....especially baked goods. I regularly bake for friends and family and am always working to improve.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas, Latkes, Meatloaf, Lasagna. To bake: Cookies, Bars, Candies
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is the one around Thanksgiving. Cooking starts the day before. Pies, stuffing and the turkey are always started on Wednesday.
My cooking triumphs
I actually made a coffee cake that was just as good as my mom's (No small feat).
My cooking tragedies
The many other coffee cakes that I attempted to make. Needless to say, the recipes went away fast!
