I learned to cook because, sadly, I think my mother is the worst cook on the face of the planet, and a kid has to eat somehow. You may not believe me, but who but the worst cook on the planet mistakenly puts a cup of salt in a cherry pie?
My favorite things to cook
I like to try my hand at new recipes from other cultures. Recently, I have been taking on Vietnamese food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Salty pie. See above.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made an angel food cake that was actually fluffy.
My cooking tragedies
I left a pot of potatoes boiling when I had to run out of the house for a few minutes - which turned out to be longer than expected. Anyway, who knew potatoes catch fire? Luckily my roommate caught them before the kitchen burned down.
