I like to make people happy with what I cook. I also like to make what I cook look good when it's served.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I'm getting into making bread and would like to be a master at making artisan breads. I like to cook meals with simple ingredients that are delicious yet hearty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking traditions are usually centered on the holidays, when friends and family get together more than usual to enjoy spending time together.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph is pastry, because for some reason I stress out on making it right. Another triumph for me is when I learned to can tomatoes.
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies are many, and most of them occurred when I was young and was just learning how to do basic meal planning. Serving that meatloaf when I had my mother and her boyfriend over that one time comes to mind. My poor mother!
