I'm young, I love to bake, and I love to try new things. My mom is an amazing cook, and my hubby's pretty good, so I haven't had a lot of practice myself. Cooking is fun and makes me feel empowered.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make cookies, zucchini bread, and banana bread. I actually got the bread recipes from allrecipes.com. Recently, I've been trying my hand at soups and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, my mother's soups, seafood on Christmas Eve
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I have been married three years. One of the traditions we've insisted on is hosting Thanksgiving. Hubby does most of the cooking and I play sous-chef. It's incredibly rewarding.
My cooking tragedies
really bad peppermint cookies... and pumpkin cookies
