I am a vegetarian, yoga teacher, math lover, who works full time at a internet software company who grew up with a mother who didn't like to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking foods from local farmers markets and taking traditional recipes and turning them healthy and vegetarian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals with my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
I am proud of the easy, time consuming creations that our grandparents used to cook but that we modern kids are taught to buy precooked/canned/frozen/packaged. Like making a huge pot of beans from scratch or veggie chili or casserole and freezing it and using it in place of crappy processed food from the grocery store. (although those sometimes have their place :) )
My cooking tragedies
Burned rice. It was so sad.
