As a kid I always loved to dink around in the kitchen, but without cooks in the house I was left to my own devices. I'd still consider myself a bit of a novice cook, baking tends to be more natural. I'm young, looking to get those staple recipes hammered down before life gets too busy to find the time to create new meals! I also only eat fish, so finding great, healthy, no-meat recipes that don't have a thousand ingredients is my goal.
My favorite things to cook
Banana bread is an all-time favorite. My grandma's roll recipe for the holidays, and anything with rice, beans, or chilies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Does it come out of a box? That's my background, trying to shake that up a bit!
My cooking triumphs
Successfully mastering pie crust. That can be quite the challenge in a non-pie eating family!
My cooking tragedies
There have been many, usually involving trying to speed up the process which can't be sped up.
