Well... I'm in high school right now and I have an absolute passion for cooking/baking that my family half likes/ half hates. My mom's a celiac, allergic to wheat, so I get a lot of rare experience in gluten free cooking. I'm really in to ethnic cooking and frontier cooking with a lot of experimenting.
My favorite things to cook
Um... I like soups if I'm in a hurry and pasta and gourmet if I have the time. I like to bake a lot too, scones and muffins- breakfasty stuff, is my favourite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, we have an awesome choc. chip cookie recipe(who doesn't?). Every Christmas morning we have super easy and fun to make cream cheese muffin puffs that are divine! We love them. Mom usually makes pecan pie on Thanksgiving and a family favorite is her Chicken Casserole.
My cooking triumphs
Making my sister's wedding cake- a
castle of french cream puffs called Croquembouche. Quite tricky to assemble!
My cooking tragedies
Not going there- too many.
