I'm an in-between-er. Just (a couple of years ago) finished college and working on figuring out which dream to follow. I love great food and strong drinks and try my best to enjoy as much of them as I can while staying within my means. I'm also into art, sewing, reading, camping, swimming, trashy reality TV shows, the ocean(although I live too far from it now) and just lazing about. Oh did I forget to mention? Cheese is my chocolate!
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas, hands down. They are deceptively easy to make from scratch and you gotta love their spicy, cheesy goodness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Barbeque, steak & martini Christmas and of course pumpkin pie.
My cooking triumphs
The first meal I cooked for my boyfriend: broiled tilapia and twice baked potatoes. Not only did he go back for seconds, but I was amazed that I didn't burn the house down (see below) or poison him. I realized that maybe, just maybe, I really could become a good cook, which I have been working on ever since.
My cooking tragedies
When I was sixteen I left a pot of gravy on the stove to warm, went out to the garage for a chat with my dad and completely forgot about it. When I finally went back inside I couldn't see ten feet in front of me. We had to call the fire department to fan out my step-mother's house. Needless to say, this made me wary of any kitchen activities for quite a while.
