I'm currently in grad school and trying to help my family eat better! I love researching recipes online and adding to my collection.
My favorite things to cook
Give me eggs any time of day! I also cook a lot of oatmeal, chicken, and desserts. Salads are also definitely a go-to in my diet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any traditions except for major holidays, which hopefully I'll change for the future. The one thing that I know I will have to continue to make for years is my mom's lasagna recipe, because I know I will never eat a dish like it anywhere else.
My cooking triumphs
After I moved back home after college (for grad school), I tried to get my family to change up their eating habits a little bit. I made a pork tenderloin recipe that I got from this website and EVERYONE liked it - including my picky 14-year-old brother and mom!!
My cooking tragedies
My grandparents have a no-fail banana bread recipe that I made sure to get a copy of. After making it a few times over the years, I thought I would change it up and make it healthier, with several significant substitutions. It came out very dry and, as my brother said, tasted like wood. I made sure to write on the recipe: "don't make this healthy!" :)
