I'm a 23 year old young woman with a love for the arts, especially culinary! I have been diagnosed with Gastroparesis and it's heart-breaking that I can't eat or even taste the foods I eat without ending up sick in the bathroom for days. I hope that one day I can become a great chef without ever having to taste or eat my own food or anyone else's unless it is something my tummy agrees with.
My favorite things to cook
Any baked goods and comfort foods. My next stop: sloppy joe's!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma's gumbo. I love watching her make it. It puts me in awe.
My cooking triumphs
My one triumph wasn't exactly in cooking but it was my brother THINKING that I had made beef stew when it was my grandma who made it. I'm getting good enough to where my grandma's cooking is getting mistaken for my own.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I actually started cooking. I tried making Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese and I put the noodles into the water before it was boiling. It was funny and I never made that mistake again.
