I'm a new mother (as of April 06) and enjoy writing, reading and baking delicious desserts. I enjoy cooking and I'm pretty good at it, but still have a lot to learn.
My favorite things to cook
cookies, brownies, cakes, pies (basically any dessert), pasta, couscous, creamy chicken dinners
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother and I often bake together during the holidays - cookies and pies mostly. We've gotten all the other grandchildren into the tradition also and it's really nice.
My cooking triumphs
My husband would rather have my homemade chocolate chip cookies than any fancy present for his birthday, Christmas, father's day, etc.
My cooking tragedies
I seem to have a fear of over cooking foods, which causes me to occasionally undercook food. Sometimes it will be overcooked on the outside and undercooked inside, or even undercooked on one side of the chicken but fine on the other. And undoubtedly, I always end up with the weird one on my plate!
