I LOVE food, but I am severely lacking in the cooking department. My skills are rudimentary at best, and I have little to no confidence in my abilities.
Unless, of course, I'm making bruschetta, or mixing drinks. Then, I'm bloody fantastic. :) I'm here trying to build my repetoir and gain some skills.
My favorite things to cook
I love making bruschetta, because it always comes out EXCELLENT! My recipie comes from How It All Vegan. I also have a pizza fetish, and greatly enjoy making fancy cocktails.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Um, not many.
My cooking triumphs
I actually managed to improvise, and make some amazing asperagus with spinach the other day, with the assistance of two tablespoons of butter and some vegetable bullion. Woo!
My cooking tragedies
I tried baking a rhubarb pie this past summer with disasterious results. My crust sort of disolved into the pie, and the filling was, just, wrong. A total failure. I don't know that I'll be trying my hand at pie again any time soon. What a bummer.
