I'm a stay at home mom who loves to cook things for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, cookies, cakes, breads, and baking-type things. I also enjoy cooking Asian and Italian foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of the traditions we're doing in our home is my daughter and I bake together on a weekly basis. Some of my happiest memories growing up were cooking in the kitchen (especially baking) with my Mom and Grandma, and I want to pass those traditions on to my daughter so she will have happy memories to treasure.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my husband's favorite dishes (Indonesian food), making eclairs/cream puffs and cheesecakes, and finally figuring out how to make bread.
My cooking tragedies
Not letting the bread rise a second time after kneading/shaping it. Ended up with rock-hard rolls. Also, I've been known to forget to put the salt into foods sometimes. Although a small ingredient, it plays a major role.
