I've been a vegetarian for over 16 years now. I've been cooking most of my life. I've learned a lot from my mom, my stepmom, my grandma, the Food Network, and from 11 years working in restaurants. I love Italian and Mexican food the most, probably beause they are simple and nutritious if done right.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian and Mexican food the most, probably beause they are simple and nutritious if done right. My Asian food could use some work, but I regard it as something to strive for. I love veggies, beans, grains, and I avoid white flour and sugar. Not much of a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian, Mexican, Chinese
My cooking triumphs
I lived in a 20-woman co-op my freshman year of college, where I managed to feed 20 people for $20 week after week. I had to make enough so that everyone could have 2nds and so that folks could invite a friend, as everyone grew to love my cooking. I had a Puerto Rican friend who helped out, and she also taught me alot.
My cooking tragedies
All involved baking.
