My Greatest Cooking TriumphWhen I was stationed in the United Arab Emirates, my crew had to work a 12 hour shift on Christmas Eve, and again on Christmas. For many of us it was our first Christmas away from home and it was not a good way to spend the holidays. I went home on Christmas Eve and stayed up all day (I worked nights) making an assortment of cookies. I brought 3 huge trays of cookies in to work that night, and even though I was exhausted I was happy to see my coworkers smiles. The cookies were all gone by morning!
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterI removed the inner lid from my jar of cinnamon one day as I needed to measure out a certain amount. I guess I had forgotten to put the lid back on, as the next time I used it, I meant to add just a sprinkle to my cookie dough but accidentally dumped about 1/4 cup! I scooped out as much as I could, but ended up doubling the cookie dough just to tone down the flavor a bit.
My Food For ThoughtIt's important to experiment with new ingredients and recipes. Some will turn out well, others may not but that's ok! Cooking can be an adventure if you make it fun!
My InterestsI love creating recipes, hiking, studying languages, and hanging out at home with my three cats.
