I'm a twenty year old student living in Florida while my husband finishes up at UF. We're expecting our first child in July. I'm from Michigan and plan to move back ASAP....awful ungodly weather in Florida.
My favorite things to cook
My Mama's stuff, the stuff I grew up eating. Greek spaghetti, kofteh, kibbeh, baklava, Arabic pizza. Home food, lol. It's also the only recipes that I actually follow the way you're supposed to. If it isn't my mother's recipe then I view the recipe more as a suggestion than instructions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All holidays should be rated on the basis of available food. My Papa's sage sausage stuffing and my Mama's sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving. My Grandma Nica's ham on Christmas. Tzaziki and galaktoboureko....delicious.
My cooking triumphs
I make good baklava, galaktoboureko, knafeh, enchiladas, pecan pie, chili, artichoke chicken. I make kickass spanakopita too.
My cooking tragedies
My banana bread where I forgot to put sugar in it...the tamale casserole that turned out soupy and inedible. Anytime I try and make cookies it's ALWAYS a tragedy.
