I am a fairly new cook. I just graduated from college, which is basically where I learned to cook at 7000ft elevation:) I love to travel and meet new people. Traveling has been one of the greatest things about cooking to me, having tried new foods abroad then trying to replicate the recipe at home.
My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything new and interesting, as long as it has a lot of flavor and as long as its a recipe I can mess around with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's summertime graham cracker eclair.
My mom's Cincinnati Chili.
My awesome beef stew w/real egg noodles.
My family's Stuffed Cabbages.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook on a budget!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to bake my bread the same way at sea level as I do at 7000ft!! Believe me it doesn't work so well!
