I work in retail and from time to time have little amount of time to make healthy meal choices as I am also a new cook (recently removed from mom). So now I am on my own I am experimenting with all my cooking to find the style that is right for me (preferably not burnt). I love looking in magazines and online for that special recipe. I also like to play on POGO.com as I am a member. Love to watch movies, tv, and radio programs.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat and make anything Italian, but have recently gone more into Mexican and Oriental cooking. I have no problem with taking a food I like and trying to cook it in a different setting example salsa in a main course Oriental style. My boyfriend and I have created several recipes and have tested them on friends and family with much success.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Creating new things with various foods we have on hand or whatever we can mix with a single food item to bring out its flavor and meet the style of food we are craving that night for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Just got my first Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I look forward to using it in as many recipes as possible.
My cooking tragedies
I rent an apartment and have a not so good stove/oven and it doesn't always allow me to cook things the way I want them. I am branching out to other methods of cooking to combat this to make my food come out delicious every time.
