Doctoral student with an allergy-prone partner.
My favorite things to cook
We seem to be obsessed with oatmeal and spinach right now (but not together!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was the queen of desserts. I miss her dearly but love that I have most of her notable recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Modifying recipes so that my partner whose allergic to poultry, pork, and eggs in addition to being diabetic can enjoy them as well. I've drastically expanded and improved his diet beyond pizza and cheeseburgers!
My cooking tragedies
Using egg replacer in a boxed brownie mix. Ended up with a oily, gooey (in a bad way) MESS. There's something to be said for making something from scratch in almost the same amount of time but with a shorter, easier-to-pronounce ingredient list.
