I'm newly married, and enjoy my dominion over the kitchen. I have a very easy-to-please husband, who encourages experimentation, but who also reminds me of the budget.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soup and bread, because they're very healthy, easy, satisfying, but available for endless variation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love holiday meals, especially the planning, preparation, and expectation of others' enjoyment.
My cooking triumphs
I recently baked a pumpkin pie for the first time, and our guest, whose favorite kind of pie happens to be pumpkin, acknowledged it as the best she'd ever had.
My cooking tragedies
My husband's birthday cake. I tried to give him what he wanted (chocolate, cream cheese frosting)and keep it healthy, and the result was something neither delicious, nor particularly cake-like. He dutifully ate almost the entire pan. I'm a blessed woman.
