About this Cook
I didn't learn to cook growing up. I studied studied studied all the time. Currently i'm working on a Masters in Philosophy. So when i got married it was a shock to have to cook 3 meals a day! I still go through phases where i don't want to cook. My kids, however, have learned to cook at a young age and they all cook better than i do. So now i'm trying to catch up.
My favorite things to cook
omelettes, cookies, i used to bake bread.. i'd like to start again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
paella i learned from my mom. I have taught my kids how to make pancakes.
My cooking triumphs
chili con carne, my husband really likes tortilla de patatas.. he's irish. But i don't really ilke potatoes that much.
My cooking tragedies
my stir fry rarely turns out. i can't make brownies taste like brownies.
