I am about to graduate from high school, and am trying to get as much cooking experience in as possible before i am forced to desert my nice kitchen for a dorm room... I have so many hobbies! I really enjoy doing almost everything. But most importantly i enjoy life... hence i enjoy cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely LOVE baking bread. of all kinds. and every kind. the ultimate stress relief is working my hands through a giant glob of delightful dough! i also like to experiment with healthy foods such as veggie soups, granola bars, and fish variations. And did i mention i adore cooking with anything involving dark chocolate??? and if you are wondering, that clearly does not contradict my obsession with healthy food... :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
really, my family doesn't cook much. there are a few "famous" recipes scattered here and there, such as gramma's christmas squash or my dad's burgers, but i am somewhat of a revolutionary when it comes to cooking in my family. Prepare yourself, Thomassons, for a chef not restricted to tacos, cornbread, and lasagne is arising from your midst!!
My cooking triumphs
I have an almond chicken recipe that I swear could take on anybody's... yes that includes you Emeril! ;-)
My cooking tragedies
once, i attempted to make leek soup as a healthy diet aid soup... well... either the final result wasn't intended to taste like dirty water seasoned with b.o. or i just don't like leeks!
