I live with a very picky fiance who thinks pizza is an important food group. I am always trying a new diet so try to create tasty health food, but I always stray to the other side.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken is my favorite meat ingredient because it is so easy to work with. I also use alot of shrimp because I can buy it precooked and put it in anything. I also try to sneak in lots of vegetables because my fiance with not eat them otherwise.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Polish and I have inherited a few basic recipes. However, I dislike many of the flavors that are popular in polish culture. My fiance's family is Jewish so I am beginning to learn many Jewish recipes.
My cooking triumphs
When I first frenched a rack of lamb and successfully cooked it, I was so proud of myself. Fancy cuisine was never a part of my family, but I am dabbling in it here and there.
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, macaroni and cheese has always been hard for me. It turns out too watery. Also, I can never get my chicken to turn out crispy under a broiler.
