My favorite things to cook
I like to bake sweet breads, cookies/bars and anything with lemon in it. I am trying to get more into cooking but its a bit boring!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I never cooked growing up but I have alway liked to bake since I was a kid. My mom is Native American and Irish so we had a pretty "spice-less" diet.
My cooking triumphs
I baked my first turkey for thanksgiving last year. I used an Allrecipes' recipe and though I'm not a big turkey fan - I was proud I didn't mess anything up and my 20 odd family members found it tasty.
My cooking tragedies
I recently tried to bake a white cake from scratch without using cake flour and I think I just substituted and mixed too many things up. It was as flat as a flan and fell apart coming out of the pan. It was for a bbq that day. I brought it anyway cause it still tasted good - just wasn't very pretty!
