I am a college student in Alaska studying philosophy. My favorite vacation spot is the Florida Everglades. I have always enjoyed cooking since I was very young, and love trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Things with lots of potatoes and rice--I am a poor college student and love making things that taste great out of good whole foods that I can get on the cheap.
If price was no obstacle, I would be baking cookies and brownies every week!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sourdough pancakes and Corn oysters.
My cooking triumphs
My first apple pie turned out pretty tasty. I also succeeded in making my first casserole more than edible! I made a vegetarian shepherd's pie two years ago for my now husband and he STILL talks about how good it was! BTW, all of these triumphs have been recipes I have gotten off of this site! :)
My cooking tragedies
Macaroons. So yummy, yet so hard to get the consistency right.
