I'm 20 years old. My mother died when I was only 3 years old, so unlike a lot of other people who have had their Mom's teach them cookng, I grew up with only my father and grandmothers. I've basically taught myself the love of cooking.
I have enjoyed cooking ever since I was little. I went to Culinary School for 2 years, then to a College Culinary School, but I could only stay for 1 semester, due to personal reasons. I've always wanted to work in a bakery or have one of my own. But right now I'm studying to be a Medical Assistant. Maybe someday I'll have my own little bakery.
Baking is my way of relaxing. It takes me away from the stress of everyday life.
My favorite things to cook
I will try just about anything, I take recipes from the numerous magazines I have and of course I get a lot of recipes from allrecipes.com!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well I cook for my imediate family, mostly just my dad and I, but I do enjoy it. I've cooked Thanksgiving meal, with all the fixings, it was a lot of work, but I enjoyed it alot! Although I'd like to have my own family someday.
My cooking triumphs
Making cakes & cookies and other desserts are my specialties.
My cooking tragedies
Oh I've had plenty of those, especially when I try to make up what I think would taste good, sometimes it works, sometimes its a disaster!
