i'm 26 years old and i live in israel. i eat only kosher food, so i like looking at recipes from magazines and stuff, and figure out how to make them kosher. it's prety easy usually.
My favorite things to cook
I love making and eating soups. I also have a recipe for Creole sauce, that is absolutely stunning!
I want to try some mexican food now, I think it might be tasty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
cutting french fries and baking them instead of frying => healthier that way. and eating it with mayonnaise (i was born in holland).
My cooking triumphs
I once made a dinner party for like 30 ppl. My father helped me a bit with the rice, a thing I'm very bad at. But I made the rest of the food (meatballs, rolls, desert) and it was very succesfull.
I also once made eggrolls from scratch! I made the pancakes (whole wheat), the filling and the sweet & sour sauce. It was a ton of work, but very worth it. I don'tknow if I'll do it again, though!
My cooking tragedies
I once managed to make a cake without flour. It had self-rising flour and I asked my mom what to use instead and she said: "1.5 tsp baking powder". So I did. I thought it was a bit weird that it didn't have regular flour, like the other recipes. It came out very weird, of course.
