I'm a stay at home mom for a newborn and normally dislike cooking cause I burn everything :(
I have a timer and double check every few minutes and it still burns... Recently I have been doing some baking and Japanese cooking and have been doing much better :)
My favorite things to cook
Mash potatoes, Traditional Ramen, Stuffed Crust Pizza, Anything Chocolate
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandpa always makes the main dish, my mom brings the drinks and jello, my grandpa makes the veggies and buns, grandpa makes the coleslaw and I bring the mash potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
I made PERFECT deviled eggs for a Easter when I was about 13. I have never been able to duplicate them!
Best Mash Potatoes EVER when I was 15, can't remember how much sour cream I added :P
I BAKED stuffed crust pizza and it turned out perfect! Ever since I made it the hubby had been begging for it every night
My cooking tragedies
It was my turn to bake something for Friday class of shop in grade 9. I went home and decided to make brownies. I made 5 batches...4 for class and 1 for my family. They were all prepared the same way, and the "test" batch was perfect. When I took them to school the next day, they were hard as rocks, not the soft and gooey ones I had baked and tested the night before...everyone was nice about it but I was never asked to bring friday snack again...
