My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything. I really like spicy foods. I like my food to keep people guessing what's next. I always add raisins to my rice. Regardless if it's a curry rice or not. I don't get intimidated in the kitchen. If you do, you might as well put down your knife. Confidence is the most important "spice" in your food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving since I was about 8 years old, it's been my job to make the pumpkin pie. My mother has tried to make it before, but she says mine is better.
My cooking triumphs
I made a honey chipotle sauce served in a restaurant that I had never had before just by my friend's description. He said it was spot on.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cheesecake that I had made many times before. For some reason this time I accidently put in 2 cups of sugar, instead of 1/2 cup. The cake never setup. It tasted great,(very sweet) but it had the consistency of a pecan pie filling.
