I live in a small town in Connecticut. I remodeled my entire kitchen 4 years ago and designed it with baking and cooking in mind! Love it.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing is baking but I love to cook, too. I must admit that I'm better at baking however. Some of my best efforts have come from this website!
My cooking tragedies
By mother's b'day cake 3 years ago. It was a last minute decision to make it and normally, I'm quite good at cakes. But because I was in a rush, I was running around the kitchen, trying to decorate it, clean up, get ready. The cake was finished and looked great...I walked away to get dressed. Came back and the top layer of the 3-layer cake had slid off the cake onto the floor! Not sure how that happened or why but all I could do was stare, then I laughed hysterically. Cleaned it up and went to the local bakery (which is what I should have done to begin with!) and got her a beautiful cake. >>>>>
Another time, I was putting away a (glass) bottle of Karo Syrup. As I was putting it on the upper shelf I lost my grasp on it and it fell, breaking into a million pieces. Do you have any idea how STICKY Karo Syrup is?? It was ALL over my kitchen - on my new expensive wood cabinets, my tile floor, my throw rugs, everywhere. Took me hours to clean it all up. Thank goodness
