Just a 20-year-old college student with a habit of baking a bit too much for her own good.
My favorite things to cook
Any kinds of cakes, cookies, or other baked goods. And pasta. I looooove pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Using THE cookbook. If I remember correctly, it's an early addition of The Women's Home Companion Cookbook. The only thing it doesn't have is a chocolate chip cookie recipe. Granted, that's because the book was published before that recipe was developed.
My cooking triumphs
My strawberry-raspberry neufchatel cake covered in chocolate ganache. A new family favorite. I call it my giant twinkie cake.
My cooking tragedies
The one time I accidentally got ahead of myself and floured the pan for an angel food cake. Woops. Still tasted delicious though, it just wasn't the most gorgeous or fluffy cake out there.
