I'm a video game programmer during the day and cook by night.
My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything. Other people prefer when I bake cakes and cookies, but I enjoy cooking/baking anything I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition we have is my brother and I on wild cooking tangents where we, for no reason, end up in the kitchen on some weekend afternoon cooking and baking for 5+ hours. What fun!
My cooking triumphs
I'd have to say the first time I made cookies from scratch with no recipe or guide. They ended up being chili flavoured, and they were actually delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I tend to not pay attention when I'm reheating leftovers, so I quite often forget they're on the stove. That's resulted in the house being filled with smoke quite a few times!
