i'm a fairly inexperienced cook who always thought i'd be terrible, but i've discovered the fun of altering recipes and adding ingredients from the right palate and my roommates and finace love everything i make! i want to expand my skills and try cooking foods with a different taste palate (such as asian and miditerranean dishes).
My favorite things to cook
chicken, fish, breakfast foods, muffins and other baked goods
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mother's spaghetti sauce, her mashed potatoes, and her famous cookies
My cooking triumphs
when i was a senior in high school my mom put me in charge of cooking fish for dinner one night--i was terrified that i didn't know how to cook and it would turn out awful, but i ended up experimenting with spices and now have a chicken/fish marinate that is to die for.
My cooking tragedies
i made my famous chicken for my family when they came to visit me at school and my dad drenched it in bbq sauce before even tasting it. i was pissed...
