I recently started to get into cooking and baking to save money. Living in NYC it's so easy to go out to eat 4-5 times a week. It's not so easy to pay for it, however! My boyfriend and I enjoy all different types of foods. However, the both of us do not eat any pork, beef, duck or turkey products. In fact, we generally only eat chicken breasts and tofu.
My favorite things to cook
I have a wide palate. I love cooking all different types of curries-thai, vietnamese, indian, and jamaican. I love anything that deals with vegetables and tofu. I also love to bake! A lot of people I know don't eat a lot of sweets so when I do make it, I try to keep it moderately healthy and not too many servings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother wasn't that big of a fan of cooking. The one thing she loved to make and we loved to eat was her Eggplant Parm.
Also, my late grandmother used to make this potato salad that was to die for. No one has been able to make it the same, despite following the same recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I'm always pushing myself to try more complicated and sophisticated recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I had a horrible experience with making spinach and cheese calzones. I prefer not to talk about it. heh.
