Middle aged single woman who loves to cook and bake. I started cooking as a latchkey kid at 8 for me and my brother and have developed that skill since.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies (I do this to make extra money), Asian is my new kick. Southern cuisine is comfort food for me. I enjoy decorating cakes and concocting new recipes, trial and error my boyfriend has suffered greatly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade noodles at thanksgiving and christmas. Roasting the turkey upside down. Popcorn balls on halloween. My grandmothers cobbler.
My cooking triumphs
I baked a wedding cake for my friend. Three heart shaped layers of carrot cake frosted with creamcheese then decorated with sweetpea flowers in buttercream. It was a huge hit.
My cooking tragedies
HoneyMustard Shrimp. Too many failed experiments to think of. The reason I started really getting into cooking.. burnt boxed mac&cheese when I was a kid.
