Living in the city makes it far too easy to forget about cooking and opt for takeout instead. It's not good for my waist or my wallet, so I'm trying to learn how to cook more from scratch at home! I can already bake better than most people, and with the help of my friends I am slowly learning to cook some great, healthy food!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but am open to trying new dishes with lots of flavour. So far I'm doing well in the BBQ area!
My favorite family cooking traditions
BBQ! and the traditional dishes (green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, etc.) that we serve at Christmas & Thanksgiving dinners.
My cooking triumphs
Every day it's something new! :)
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a lovely cake for Thanksgiving, with colourful leaves piped on a chocolate base. The middle of the cake didn't rise, so I had to compensate with 2 inches of frosting in the middle, to even it out! It looked fine on the outside... but was terrible on the inside!
