I'm a giggly geeky girl who loves to blog.
I'm from a family who has been very involved in cooking, from growing up initially in a meat-eating house, to turning mostly vegetarian, and then everything in between as I moved out on my own and got married to a vegetarian.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking Macaroni and Cheese the best, from a white sauce and simmering butter and then baking it to make the flavors the best. I also enjoy baked goods - cakes and cookies are my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is an excellent cook, and catered me and my sibling's weddings. We have a lot of family traditions that I enjoy keeping up with, like bringing the same foods for thanksgiving each year. I try to be the recorder of the family, taking recipes we've used for years and putting them on the web so they won't be lost over time (www.theredkitchen.net).
My cooking triumphs
I'm quite proud to have my grandma's Panda Bear cake pan that she used for my siblings on their 1st birthday. I've made two of these decorated cakes now for my niece and nephew.
