My mother was professionally trained as a baker and is a wonderful cook overall, so I was lucky enough to be raised with homemade bread and fresh pancakes in the morning!
My favorite things to cook
My absolute favorites are Thai green curry, spinach and portabella mushroom lasagne (with homemade sauce of course!), Beer Can Chicken, and turkey with all the trimmings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning and homemade pizzas. We would come home from school to the dough rising and the four of us would get SOOO excited! We each got to roll out our own little pizza and add our toppings. Some of my favorite memories involve aruging over who got to bake theirs first :)
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting a roast turkey, mastering Thai green curry, and my mad BBQ'n skills.
My cooking tragedies
Hahaha! Too many to list, but my favorite one from childhood was when I tried to make a cake from a box mix. I misread the directions and used quarts of water instead of cups...
