I am a new mommy to a beautiful little girl, Macalaigh. My husband and I are stationed in Germany, but at the moment he is deployed. I love living in Germany (except when it snows). The food over here is interesting. I love the bakeries downtown and am absolutely obsessed with Doner Kebaps. Sometimes I like to go to the Germany grocery stores and pick stuff out that I may not know, but that looks good! Trial and error, baby!
My favorite things to cook
I love making breads! I think some of the best I have made have been the Lemon Blueberry bread and Coffee Date Bread. I love making desserts, all kinds. I believe that most everything you pay for at a restaraunt can be made at home for less money and better quality.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Granny always makes these awesome oatmeal raisin cookies. Every year on my birthday she makes this wonderful chocolate puddin pie. Too Good! My mom is known for her Wassail at Christmas and my dad can throw down with pizza and manicotti. He slow cooks his spagetti sauce all day long, it can't be beat!
My cooking triumphs
I made my first lasagna from scratch (including sauce) when I was 15. It was a hit! Once I made a French onion soup and it was so much better than my mothers that she did not speak to me for a couple of days. Any time I master a new recipe is a good day.
My cooking tragedies
One time, when there was not much in the cupboard, I decided to make a goulash type thing. Well, I had the best intentions. To this day my husband always reminds me of the day I made "Pigslop".
