I'm taking classes part time, working toward optometry school. I work at Borders Bookstore. I cook for my boyfriend and my two other roommates all the time - it's better than the Ramen noodles they cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook - and eat! - pasta and any Italian dish. I'm trying my hand at Asian food, but my boyfriend likes that more than I do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother (100% Italian) made delicious homemade ravioli and was an expert at casseroles. My other grandmother (100% Slovak) made the best split pea soup this side of Mars. It was heavenly.
My cooking triumphs
I can make any dish with chicken. :o) I'm also amazed that I can cook anything at all, considering the size of our tiny apartment kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at pan-frying and cooking in oil.
