Simple and scrumptous is my cooking style. I love to cook just about anything, give me a recipe and I'll try it. I don't think food has to be complicated to be good and like to stay as close to nature as possible.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast foods are easy and so variable. I enjoy baking sweets, especially for holidays or special occasions. I love to try new things and am really starting to branch out as I spend more time in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am trying to capture and establish new traditions. growing up apart from a large part of my family, it's been hard to identify my family traditions. Seems like we have new ones every few years.
My cooking triumphs
Every succesful meal that makes it to the table. I love to see the faces of my family and friends after a satisfying meal... or at least their cleaned plates! I love the morning rush when everyone is trying to get out the door and I feel like a short order cook. I can have an omelet or breakfast burrito on a plate in under 5 min. :)
My cooking tragedies
A Christmas day Apple Pie with a very brown crust and a very watery filling. The only one who ate it was my dad, and I think that was out of pity.
