I love to cook! I tend to bake when I get bored at home and love to try new recipes. I'm always looking for top rated recipes and am trying to start my own family cook book with my familys best recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I tend to make alot of cookies, bars and breads. I also love trying new ideas for dinners, we get sick of the same stuff all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't know that we have alot of traditions in my family, I do learn alot of cooking from my dad and I'd have to say I've outcooked his chili,spagetti and split pea soup.
My cooking triumphs
I've made baked alaska and fried ice cream. I don't know that you'd call it a triumph but I think being able to keep ice cream frozen while baking/frying it is quite a skill.
My cooking tragedies
The second time I used yeast I learned that I killed it after 3 hrs of baking puula. I then learned how to "proof" it and haven't messed up since.
