I started cooking about fourteen years ago, when I got married. I had no clue how to cook. At first, it was a chore, but then I started enjoying it, experimenting and trying new things. I got better and better, and I would say now I'm a pretty good cook, but I still learn new things every now and then.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking, but I really enjoy baking. It takes me to my own little world, and I find it soothing, relaxing, makes me feel better when I'm stressed.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making christmas cookies with the kiddos.
My cooking triumphs
A four layer tuxedo cake that came out perfectly.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started baking, I made applesauce bars that called for confectioners sugar. I had just moved to the US from Germany and had no clue what that was, so I used regular sugar. The bars were completely inedible.
