I have lived on both the east and west coasts. I like cats a lot more than dogs. I can crochet a really cool pattern for a pot holder.
My favorite things to cook
...and eat: gingerbread men, strawberry rhubarb crisp, caramel, fajitas, flourless chocolate cake, peach french toast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
During the holidays I like to make cornbread stuffing and cranberry salad, gingerbread cookies, Swiss fondue, and a gingerbread house. For someone's birthday they get to choose the dinner meal and dessert.
My cooking tragedies
One time I accidentally added 5x the amount of honey needed for the recipe of granola I was making. I had meant to just double the recipe. We had quite a laugh and lots of granola.
I can not seem to successfully make a chocolate cake. Every time I have tried it falls. Then again, I only make cakes 2 or 3 times a year. So it is probably just a matter of practicing.
