hello, i am stephanie. i go to school and live in chicago. my mom taught me how to cook and i hope to be able to cook as great as her one day. she makes simple food the right way, completely from scratch.
i have celiac disease. i take all of the recipes i used to like that i can't eat anymore and make substitutions with gluten free products. update 2012: Also trying to cut out animal products.
My favorite things to cook
2007: i love eating mexican food. i also like making sweets because i have a major sweet tooth. update 2012: I still love mexican food and sweet, but I am currently doing a local produce share program - so my cooking is becoming more experimental, more simple, and most of all healthier!
My favorite family cooking traditions
when i am at home i am always helping my mom in the kitchen. taking a lesson.
My cooking triumphs
This is always changing... anytime I cooking and people are enjoying it is a triumph for me!
My cooking tragedies
vegitarian chili. i was cooking for veg. friends and i added entirely too much tomato paste in the pot. they ate it and said it was great. apparently vegetarians aren't picky.
tzatakiki. i didn't know i was supposed to drain the yogurt. so it turned into a soup like dill fest.
