I'm 25 years old, and I've just started to really learn my way around a kitchen. There's been a few disasters, but it's all a learning experience. Life is a journey, not a destination!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake! Cookies, cakes, anything sweet and tasty. I'm on the prowl for the perfect chocolate icing recipe. It eludes me as yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every sunday in the summer months my family has a potluck barbeque. We all live fairly close together, so we throw together something tasty to eat and head over to my uncle's house to grill. It's been like that since I was little. In mid-may, around the 15th, we have a lobster boil, and each year we have different holiday dinners at a certain person's house.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally recreated my grandma's stuffing recipe! It's very few ingrediants, but I just could never get it right. You know how grandmas are; 'a pinch' of this, 'a handful' of that. Next up; her soft molasses cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Oh god. I don't know if they're -tragedies- so much as cooking snafus. I remember making mac and cheese without cooking the roux (didn't have half a clue was a roux was anyway). It was disgusting, cheese-flavored flour-paste. Oh! Here's a good one. Once upon a time, I put on hot dogs to boil, then I went into the computer room to chill out. So I'm cruisin' the internet and the SMOKE ALARM goes off. I rush out the kitchen! The water is evaporated and the hot dogs are BURNT to the bottom of the pan. Try telling someone that knows that you've burnt BOILED HOT DOGS that the cake you're serving them is safe to eat. :x
