Hello - Military baby - Air Force, naturalized US citizen. Unmarried, no children.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, baking especially, however I do more reading of dessert recipes than actual cooking of them.
Lately I have been more interested in healthy cooking and finding interesting things to bring to work for lunch. No boring sandwiches for me. Lunch has become my primary meal and much more interesting from a culinary standpoint.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! I have great memories of Thanksgiving, the way the house smelled, cooking with my Mother and Sister.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to cook for and I host Thanksgiving every year. I love doing all of the preparations and decorating. Yes, Thanksgiving is my favorite family cooking tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Carrot Cake, Cheese Cake
My cooking tragedies
When I was a teenager I had a taste for Carrot cake. It was late at night, before 24 hour grocery stores and there weren't any carrots in the house. I went on and made the cake without them. Of course it promptly fell. Well this certainly re-enforced the concept that baking is chemical.
Live, learn, and love!
