About Me
I am a determined survivor (of several things) and I have learned to never give up.
My favorite things to cook
I am adventurous and love trying to attempt at making things from all over the world and trying new stuff all the time. I am a huge fan of taking something simple like tomato soup and adding spices and stuff and attempting new flavors in things that are still easy to make. My new passion with cooking is finding healthy substitutions that still convey the right textures or effects.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a family we always try a new unexpected twist on a dish once a week.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a slice of "chocolate" cake that has less then 60 calories a slice.
My cooking tragedies
Way too many
