About this Cook
I LOVE cooking, only started to really get into it a few years ago but I'm still young (only 24) and need a lot more practice. I get a lot of help and advise from my mom, I could only hope I'm as good as her one day. I get to cook for my family once in awhile during the week and for my boyfriend on weekends.
My favorite things to cook
I have a friend who's half Mexican and he taught me how to make the best guacamole! My boyfriend also loves avocado so I always try to make new salads with it. I also enjoy making Italian dishes, chicken dished and overall just trying out new recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everything that my mom makes is just so good that I don't think I have anything that's my favorite. Both my mom and my sister bake, which I love but I definitely need more enthusiasm in that department.
My cooking triumphs
I make amazing lasagnas. I started off with the original recipe, tried different ones a few times and than started combining what I learned from each one and now I make one hell of a dish! Ever since then I've made all types of different lasagnas and learned that you can basically make it with anything. My biggest achievement recently was making my own white cheesy chicken Alfredo sauce!!!
My cooking tragedies
I have a problem with portioning, I have a really bad eye for what I think will be enough or won't be enough for my recipes.

Mexican Baked Fish
This was the best fish I ever made! Definitely use Cod, I think that's what makes the meal so good. It's very easy to make and taste simply delicious!

Teriyaki and Pineapple Chicken
Came out great! I did spend a little more time on the chicken because I decided to dip it in flour and then fry it. It tasted great, I loved the sweetness of it and the pineapples.
