Former bike messenger, currently hair stylist. Trying to branch out with my cooking. 5 years ago I could only make pasta to now I have attempted pretty much everything expect canning and gingerbread. Lives with two hungry roommates who are always willing to try new recipes or dishes I might cook up and also has a boyfriend who will always take leftovers.
My favorite things to cook
breads, veggie dishes, brownies
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from the Ukraine and I loved helping my family cook Ukrainian food as a kid, and now doing it as an adult and sharing it with friends who have never had it.
My cooking triumphs
First (with no help from aunts) batch of cabbage and leek pirogi. Baking my own yeast bread. Various desserts. Pretty much the fact I went from being someone who grew up in a house with no one who regularly cooked to someone who prepares everything from scratch.
