I really don't consider myself a cook as much as I do a baker. I love to bake - cookies, cakes, pies, breads, etc. It sometimes rises to the level of obsession, but I love it and I find it simultaneously relaxing and stimulating. Rolled, cut, diped and decorated cookies are my area of expertise. People like the designs to much, I have catered events with my cookies.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, pies, breads
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday baking with my children. We typically make 5-6 recipes and make hundreds of cookies. My children are better at rolling, cutting, dipping and decorating cookies than most adults! Brunch is also a family tradition on New Year's Day and many Sundays throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Catering 2 events per year with my decorated cookies and making dinner for 200 people at a church event. Rave reviews from all of the above!
