I love to cook and I love to learn about cooking! I've thought about opening a bakery someday, and aside from baking I like to come up with creative vegetarian meals for my fiance and I. I'm a college student and I work as a receptionist.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things to make are soups, homemade veggie burgers, breads, cookies, and ethnic foods - especially Indian. My favorite spice is coriander and I love vanilla extract for baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom was always amazing at Christmas time and gave out boxes of homemade cookies and candy as gifts. I like to follow in that tradition by baking for my friends and in-laws. I feel like it's a really nice and personal gift and something that not a lot of people do anymore.
My cooking triumphs
My black bean burger recipe is a huge hit, and I'm a master of soups. My veggie pot pie is better than any chicken pot pie and my chocolate chip cookies have been proclaimed the best.
My cooking tragedies
I have a hard time with pie crust, so I've taken to just buying them frozen.
