I am a college student living in the dorms...not good news for a budding cook! Luckily my fiancee has an apartment with a decent kitchen, and I try to have a nice dinner with him every night...Gotta practice for married life!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, desserts, DESSERTS! ;) I also love Asian food (but I'm tentative to cook certain things) and I also love reading about low-carb recipes since my fiancee is a Type 1 diabetic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At every Christmas, my Mimi makes her gingersnap cookies. Those are and will be my undoing; along with her chicken and dumplings and pineapple upside-down cake. My Mom's moist and sweet cornbread is another favorite too.
My cooking triumphs
The one time I ever grilled chicken, it turned out magnificently. It was actually cooked all the way through!!!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to cook a nice steak for my sweetheart, and burning the ever-living snot out of it...I hid my face in embarrassment for about a day or so after that.
