We all have a sweet tooth, but as it turns out, all my teeth prefer sweets! I'm the weirdo in the restaurant that orders two desserts (one to take home, of course!) and why? Because I can.
My favorite things to cook
I like making new things, especially baking. I'm always trying out new recipes for cookies, bars, and desserts and bringing them into work for my co-workers to try. Or finding a yummy side dish for for family/work potlucks. I'm always on the hunt for "the" winning recipe for particular items that I can keep forever.
My favorite family cooking traditions
*Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup on Cold, Rainy, Lazy Days.
*Hot German Potato Salad when grilling out.
*Fresh Homemade Bread (no bread machine!) with Homemade Soup/Chili on dark winter nights.
My cooking triumphs
I love baking new cookies and such, bringing them to work, and getting rave reviews! I work in Food and Beverage, so when our Executive Chef wants MY recipe, that's sweet!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started baking, no matter what I did, cookies always turned into hockey pucks for me. It was a running joke with my family.
