I started dating a boy a few years ago and he is a master chef...not literally, but his food really is to die for! Anyway, I could barely boil an egg (he actually taught me the best way to do that too), and I knew it was time to learn. So here I am, I've been cooking over 3 years now, OH, and I married the boy!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking and I am actually getting quite good at this aspect of the kitchen. I loved it the first time I made a great coconut cake from scratch and when my parents saw it, and ate it, refused to believe that I'd done it alone. It's extremely satisfying when people bite into your creations and then don't stop!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has made two things every year at Christmas for as long as I can remember, and I will carry on the tradition with pride! Linzer Tarts and Pralines...YUM!
My cooking triumphs
I'm still all grins over my first, from scratch, coconut cake!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried creme brulee it was beyond pathetic. However, I've since tried again, bought the proper equipment, and had no troubles since.
