My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything, especially trying new recipes. I'm gluten-free and try to eat as healthy as possible!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I've been a plan-as-you-go cook, experimenting with different concoctions in the kitchen since I was little. My parents were always very trusting of my crazy recipes and bold moves, even though I could sense their fear haha (But, my food always did come out tasty!). To this day, when I'm cooking for my family at my parent's house, I'll respond to their questions about my food with "we'll see!" and everyone laughs, thinking about how some things never change.
My cooking triumphs
For my 21st birthday, I went on a cruise to the Bahamas with my family and was served an awesome gluten-free, flour-less chocolate cake. It was so creamy, chocolately, and delicious, we took the extra cake from dinner back to our rooms, and my brother and I ended up finishing the entire thing by the time the cruise was over! A little more than a year later, I figured out the recipe and recreated it perfectly:)
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make my own wine the fall of my junior year at college--well, I completely ignored the physics of it and didn't leave an air opening for the pressure build-up. In the middle of the night there was a really loud BOOM, and when I checked in the morning my entire kitchen was covered in wine, and the white ceiling had a giant blueish-purple explosion all over it. Ooops!
