My Greatest Cooking TriumphI was making my own bread and full meals in my early teen years. I'm not sure I've progressed much since then! But anytime I cook something that both I and my husband like, I feel like I've accomplished something, as our tastes are very different.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterHmmm, I'm sure there have been many! There was a rather involved pumpkin-harvest cake that I was making for Thanksgiving. The recipe called for a square pan, but I was determined to make it round so it would fit on my cake stand. I baked it in my springform pan, and butter and batter seeped out the bottom of the pan. It dripped and burned all over my oven, so by the time guests arrived, it smelled as if I'd burned the house down. Plus we had no cake!
My Food For ThoughtWhen I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be. --Molly Wizenberg
