I'm a vegetarian who is making strides to become vegan. I also have a meat-eating (and meat-loving) live-in significant other. One more detail to keep it interesting: I'm a rotten, terrible cook.
My favorite things to cook
Midwestern home cooking. Crockpot, casseroles, pot pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Norwegian pastries and desserts, specifically lefse with Crisco instead of lard.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmother retired her secret molasses and ginger cookies when I made them the first time. Now they're MY secret cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Every meal, every day. 2/3 of my Kraft Mac and Cheese Dinners come out wrong. Last week, I blew up the coffeemachine and burned down the toaster. That's how bad it is. Please help.
