I'm a recent/jobless college grad from Ohio University. I really love cooking and cooking shows, especially Good Eats (anything with Alton Brown, really)!
My favorite things to cook
Baking (especially bread), curries, Japanese food, bento boxes, anything pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes some killer potato salad. :)
My cooking triumphs
Making a double layer cake that I iced and decorated myself, with auxiliary (and matching) cupcakes. They were Japanese christmas cake themed to boot.
My cooking tragedies
When I tried to make a cake for a party and I ran out of powdered sugar for the icing... went with a boyfriend's advice and ended up using granulated sugar instead! Made for a nasty, grainy cake. No harm, though, it was just a college drinking party and the drunks ended up loving it. LOL.
