I am a college student studying biology.
My favorite things to cook
I like trying new recipes but my style is pretty improvisational. I don't often follow recipes to a tee.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is jewish, so on special occasions we have traditional fare like chicken soup with matzah balls, brisket, gefilte fish, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Knowing where to get the best and cheapest produce in town. I'm a student, so I am always short on cash. Learning how to eat well without spending too much on grocery excursions is an ongoing process, but I'm getting pretty good at it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a kid my best friend and I used to bake cakes that were awful. No one would eat them- not even us. We did have fun making them, though!
