My mother never really cooked when i was a kid and when she did it was the same stuff over and over again. Since coming to college i have realized to a great degree my love of food, and especially the things i never ate growing up. Since realizing this i have also realized a great love of cooking and entertaining. Cooking is a hobbie you can eat and share with other people at the same time... it's definitely my kind of hobbie!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with fresh everything; fresh vegatable, fresh herbs, fresh meat (when i use it), etc... I tend to lean more towards vegeterian meals. I like it when recipes have a lot of spices and herbs and lots of flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There really aren't may cooking traditions in my family. I'm creating them as i cook i guess!
My cooking triumphs
Fruit tarts that rival those made by professionals! And one hell of a complicated but tasty cream of broccoli soup!
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure in the years i've been cooking or attempting... there have many, which i have convienently blocked from my memory!
