To all the wonderful readers who commented on my last blog post: I'm a blonde. I didn't even realize I had comments until today - nearly 4 months later. In fact, I'm stunned that other people are in my same predicament! Whenever I tell "normal" people, they just look at me strangely and…
I'm currently a PhD student, studying environmental science. When my head is not in a book, one of my favorite hobbies is cooking! I find it such an exciting adventure, and love those "weird" recipes!! I was recently married in July of 2009. I met my husband, Justin, while we were both volunteering at a nursing home here in the DFW area. Currently, we are planning to move to San Francisco.. (so excited about the possibilities!)
My favorite things to cook
Salads (don't laugh!), pastas, breads, quiche, plantains, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom cooked everyday during my childhood. She probably had more of the "Rachel Ray" style of cooking. My dad is more of a southerner, so we had allot of traditional foods in American cuisine (meatloaf, chicken, stews, etc...).
My cooking triumphs
(see favorite things to cook.. lol)
My cooking tragedies
Ugh. Too many to name. I'm seriously the poster child for "if you don't succeed...." Rice is just the worst!! so are my tortillas, it's so pathetic! Also, MEAT! I'm a vegetarian (since I was 12), so I literally am learning "from scratch" how to cook meat - without ever tasting it. It's a whole new experience to cook meat with only my sense of smell, sight, and touch (with a gloved hand).
