After many years of college, I am finally starting my career in market research/advertising. I love coming home after work and unwinding by cooking nice meals for myself and my husband.
My favorite things to cook
Hmm, probably everything.. seriously. Chicken and beef are staples in this household, but I try to include other varieties of meats as well. In addition, I try to incorporate vegetarian dishes once in a while to shake things up. I am much more of a "cooker" than a "baker" and like to experiment with herbs and spices. If I do bake, it usually involves some type of chocolate.. yum!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was an awesome cook, and I grew up having some pretty great meals on a regular basis, even though she was feeding 7+ every night! I hope that I can continue to grow more experienced and perhaps someday be as good of a cook as she was.
My cooking triumphs
Probably cliche, but I proudly cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner in 2007... with the help of my husband and two sisters. I was pretty nervous... and made WAY too much food. But I think everything left happy and satisfied.
My cooking tragedies
Hmm, I really don't think I have any major ones. Once in a while I'll forget something in the oven, only to realize it's in there when the fire alarm starts blaring.
