There is nothing I will not eat - except a green salad. ;)
My favorite things to cook
I have had the most success baking cheesecakes, pies, tarts, and desserts that require little to no flour. Anything else seems to end up in smoke (literally).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad specializes in Chinese BBQ, so I grew up enjoying everything from sweet and sour pork, roasted duck, to everything in between. One of my favorite foods is roasted pig feet, which, although very high in fat, is very satisfying to eat.
My cooking triumphs
My first time baking anything - ever - was a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for my friend's 18th birthday. Everyone was amazed I'd pulled it off without any baking experience.
My cooking tragedies
For Thanksgiving one year, my roommates and I were all in charge of making one dish for dinner. One roommate made a lovely pumpkin pie and left it on a burner to cool. Another roommate was boiling potatoes and asked me to watch them for a bit. The potatoes began to boil over, so I drained out some water and put it back on the burner. After three minutes or so of non-boiling potatoes, I noticed that smoke was beginning to rise from the pumpkin pie. To my horror, I'd turned on the wrong burner and burned the entire bottom off our Thanksgiving dessert.
