I'm a 21 year old house mom with a passion for baking. I'm my happiest covered in flour, watching someone try one of my creations... My only problem is letting them chew and swallow before asking "what do you think?"... I can't WAIT til my son's old enough to start eating solids. (He's 2 months old and breastfed.)
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate cake of all types, cheesecakes, apple, blueberry, and peach pie, cookies,(all save chocolate chip, which never turn out well). Pot roast and soups... the list goes on and on....
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a noodle recipe thats past down to one woman out of every generation. I'm the sixth generation to get it,(it bypassed my grandma as she's an only child and a horrible cook) I learned it from my mother, and I make it every thanksgiving (another tradition.)
My cooking triumphs
My banana bread recipe, or should I say non-recipe. I've gotten so good at making it that I can do it completly on the fly, without even using a single measurment.
My cooking tragedies
My failure to ever succesfully make a batch of chocolate chip cookies... I just can't do it.
