I'm a writing major at my local University and I really love to cook. I'm going to Paris and London in May and am so excited to go!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking different chicken recipes and mexican food. I also love making creme brulee and crepes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite is Thanksgiving. It's really tradition food and I love smelling the turkey cooking in the house all day long. I always get to make the mashed potatoes in my house and I love using the masher on them.
My cooking triumphs
For some reason I cannot make a pancake to save my life but crepes are kind of a specialty of mine, at least in my house. I'm the only one in my house that can tell if a crepe is done and ready to flip or not. I also love making creme brulee and the different steps that are needed to make it correctly are something that I am willing to do repeatedly.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making orange chicken one night and the sauce ended up being too sweet and too thick. It had the same consistency peanut butter that had been in the fridge for a few hours. It was completely awful.
