I'm a student at UC Berkeley, and one of my favorite things is to cook! No, I don't live in the dorms so yes, I have a kitchen to cook in!
I've also cooked for some church youth conferences so I have a little bit of large quantity experience.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking comfort food, it's by far my favorite, and usually delicious for the amount of effort you put into it. I like eating fancier food but I don't always have the patience to cook it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Burning things... (Something my mom does more than I do, but I'm gettig better at it, sadly) really, I don't think my family really has cooking traditions. I guess we used to have some tasty recipes when I was a kid but I am making my own way as far as cooking goes.
My cooking triumphs
The other day I made an indian curry without ever cooking and indian food before and all from stuff I just had around the pantry and it was DELICIOUS!
I've also made some damn good jambalaya. As well as many other things.
My cooking tragedies
These mostly involve me burning things, or not having all parts of a meal ready at the same time. Those are things I need to work on, but I just bought a timer so that should help... cause I have a hard time just looking at the clock. I'm also getting a microwave soon, so if things get cold it will be less of a big deal haha.
