I'm 26 years old. My fiance and I just bought our first house, so we're finally trying to grow up and start eating at home. Only, I'm not the best cook. We're quickly finding that even purging the bad stuff, it's far less expensive than eating out every night.
My favorite things to cook
I am really enjoying baking. I love the way my co-workers light up as I bring them each new treat. I also really enjoy pies. I get a different sense of accomplishment from anything that comes completely from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from an unconventionally small Italian family. I had a single father and he did all of the cooking. He was so overprotective, he worried that I would burn myself.
My cooking triumphs
I'm finding that I'm generally good at following directions.
My cooking tragedies
I really like plain tortillas burnt to a crisp. My fiance swears that it's merely default due to my long time cooking skill.
