I live in Syracuse NY. I am a mother to a perfect little girl(6yr). I am currently trying to learn to cook everyday meals, not just holiday or large get-together meals. I work full-time. My favorite thing to eat(haven't tried to make it yet) is old fashioned Tiramisu. Not the cake version's or fruity types, but the true stuff with lady fingers and mascarpone cheese. I couldn't even begin to think of how many restaurant's and bakery's I've tried Tiramisu at.
My favorite things to cook
A very big turkey or ham dinner for the holiday's. I love doing everything from the main meat entree down to the little thing's like rolls and the gravy completely from scratch. I feel so proud of myself when my family sits down to eat after I've been in the kitchen all day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just started this year. Teaching my daughter(5yr) to cook and bake. My mother always did everything herself, so I never learned how to cook until I moved out on my own and then through trial and error. This year we just started on plain sugar cookies and homemade brownies.
My cooking triumphs
Recently I nailed a recipe for Murgh Makhani. Tastes just like the dish from my local Indian Restarant. 4th time was a charm for me.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping that perfect turkey on the floor when it was completely cooked trying to put in back in the oven to brown the skin a little more. I never swear and it sounded like a trucker was in the kitchen after the turkey fell.
