I am an ambitious cook, looking for things that will both challenge me and delight my taste buds. Also, I am looking to put together a menu for a restaurant that I will be opening within the coming years - the sooner the better! Anything with a tropical flair is what I'm looking for. I've already found many from this site and have tried a few. I'm trying to try at least one new recipe a week!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to make desserts! I know, that doesn't go with that "healthy" box that I checked in an earlier question, but, it's ok, it's dessert! I love to work with chocolate - molding, dipping, making clusters, etc.
Also, I am a fan of making healthy food choices, and I am constantly trying ways to make those bads choices a little more healthy, while still being appetizing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's Mexican food is the best. I must say that cheating on my diet is warranted when it comes to our mexican food! While it's not exactly traditional, it's the best! Mmmm, now I'm hungry!
My cooking triumphs
My favorite meal I've ever had with my family would have to be the night my boyfriend (VERY much an amateur) and I made authentic Chinese food for 12 people on my Mom's b-day. What a mess! We had the best time, the food turned out GGGGGREAT! and my boyfriend learned how to make something other than mac 'n' cheese! Many laughs and memories. It's the best to cook for the ones you care about!
My cooking tragedies
My first experience cooking white rice - 11 years old. Too much water, same amount of cooking time - ICK! Pizza it was!
