I am truly a baker at heart, but as I get older, I realize that eating brownies for breakfast isn't going to cut it anymore. I watch an absurd amount of Food Network and spend far too much of my paycheck at the grocery store and Williams-Sonoma.
My favorite things to cook
I love making prepared staples at home, like peanut butter and applesauce. I also really enjoy baking not-so-ordinary cakes for each of my friends birthdays. If it was acceptable, I would eat and prepare only breakfast food, all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most of my family traditions consist of me making messes in the kitchen and occaisionally a meal in the process. I am pumped about learning my husbands family recipes, Challah!
My cooking triumphs
Baking challah from scratch was probably my most exciting feat. I wanted to shout from the rooftops
My cooking tragedies
I don't eat meat, so I should have known better than to make a beef brisket for a dinner party of 8. I was mortified when my husband told me that I had just served my friends a vile slab of beef with sour tasting BBQ sauce.
