I am a twentysomething who recently got married and loves to cook. I started out just wanting simple recipes to make for my then-fiance and myself. Now I love to cook! Being on Jillian Michaels (weight loss), I constantly try to lighten-up my recipes, without neglecting quality.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always looking for new chicken recipes. I love to cook desserts, especially for other people (so I don't have to resist eating the whole thing; I can just have a bite, and give the rest away! :) I also love anything with pumpkin. I would like to learn more about Asian cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's peanut butter cake is mandatory for birthdays! My grandmother's mashed potatoes and her creamed corn are to die for. Also, my other grandmother's biscuits are excellent.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking my husband's family a big meal all by myself - and they raved about it all!
My cooking tragedies
Haven't had too many of those yet. I did make a spinach calzone my husband hated (but I thought it was okay...)
