I have a business making jewelry but I'm just now getting passionate about making other things like art, clothes and FOOD!
My favorite things to cook
Artichoke dip with green chiles, which is linked to in my picture section. Best stuff on earth. I also mix it up with bare hands before I bake it. When that grosses people out, I say, more dip for me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving I make cranberry jello and arrange cool whip and mini oreos on top. I don't like to eat cranberry sauce, so this is a yummy spin on an essential tradition.
My cooking triumphs
One of my favourite things about cooking is doing away with people's bad associations with certain food. I maintain that there's no bad kind of food, just food that people have convinced themselves is bad.
My cooking tragedies
I asked Dad how to make roux, and he said "You heat up some flour and butter for a few minutes..." and I microwaved it. There was a rouxful day.
