My husband and I just had our first anniversary, and throughout the year I've been learning how to cook for both of us and not just myself. I'm expanding my recipe box to include his favorites, and I'm converting him to some of my favorites too.
My favorite things to cook
I simply adore baking. If I'm stressed, lonely, upset, or dealing with any other negative feeling, baking helps. This, unfortunatly, has had an adverse effect on my husband's wasitline.
My cooking triumphs
We are members of our local volunteer fire company--he's a firefighter and I work on the administrative side. This past year I put together cookie variety bags for 30+ people at Christmas time, plus some baked goodie bags for my girlfriends from college.
My cooking tragedies
There is one recipe for brown sugar cookies in a book from my aunt that I simply cannot get to turn out right. The dough is runny and the cookies never cook evenly. I bake on stone, and regardless of preheating, I simply find it impossible to make these cookies.
