I LOVE TO BAKE; ALWAYS HAVE. MY FONDEST MEMORY IS FROM MY TEENAGE YEARS WHEN MY LITTLE SISTER (WHO IS 13 YRS YOUNGER) AND I WERE BAKING CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. WE HAD JUST MOVED INTO OUR NEW HOUSE AND WHENEVER I AM STRESSED, I BAKE. THIS WAS A VERY STRESSFUL TIME IN MY LIFE. WE PROBABLY ATE MORE OF THE DOUGH THAN WE BAKED.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE TO BAKE ANYTHING. I AM AFRAID OF PIE CURSTS THOUGH. No longer am I afraid of pie crusts! Yay me. I have made at least two or three this last year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
WE ALWAYS BAKE THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS. WE ALWAYS HAVE WAY TOO MANY PIES AND COOKIES.
My cooking triumphs
NONE AS OF YET. AS SOON AS I MAKE MY VERY OWN PIE CRUST I CAN SAY, "I DID IT!" I DID IT! I have conqured my fear of baking my own pie crust. Thanks Shan for always pushing my to try it.
My cooking tragedies
INSTEAD OF LETTING THE BUTTER SOFTEN, I MELTED IT AND THE COOKIES WERE AWFUL.
