My favorite things to cook
Mediterranean food: Italian, Spanish, Greek, also German (most of my background). Soups. My family likes my cheesy chicken enchiladas. Also, desserts, mainly cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Helping my mom bake bread. As a kid, she'd let me help knead the dough.
My cooking triumphs
A pineapple upside down cake (from scratch) for my brother's birthday. It was my first time making the cake, so to do it from scratch too...!
My cooking tragedies
One time making minestrone soup, and I cooked out all the broth. Another time trying to make an apple pie crust, and I made the dough too dry and broke apart.
