I really started to learned how to cook after I got married because doing take out everyday was getting expensive and boring and poor hubby was getting tired of eating sandwhiches. I was also gaining weight like crazy. I have come to realized that I enjoy the whole process of cooking and experimenting with the recipies, but not the clean ups : )
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Baryani, Chicken Tikka, Kung Pao chicken, Pizzas, burgers and fish (mostly talapia)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anytime I cook with my mom, I just enjoy it.
My cooking triumphs
Making Baklava from this site and surprising my husband at how good it tasted.
My cooking tragedies
I once make Nihari ( a pakistani dish that consist of a beef shank curry) I added too much flour as a thickning agent and it was a gloppy mess. I had to throw out the whole batch and start over.
