*VICTORIA* I'm a happy lady that likes geese and cats. I've recently started my adventure with cooking and am liking where it's going. *ANDREW* I've always enjoyed cooking growing up, especially with my mother, aunt, and grandmother. Now that I'm on my own, I have an incredible opportunity to explore my culinary skills to the fullest.
My favorite things to cook
*VICTORIA* I have a couple chicken dishes that I really love to cook. I also enjoy trying out different chili recipes in our slow cooker. *ANDREW* Curry, stew, and breakfast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
*VICTORIA* My grandma Renee makes Italian food like no other. I have to say though, my favorite family not-so-tradition is the time my dad was trusted to make the Christmas dinner and made a Tur-Duck-En and gumbo. *ANDREW* Homemade (secret family recipe) Wienerschnitzel, with a little help from my Ma, Poppop, sis, and three brothers. Add a side of Murt's bread and you've got yourself a fine family dinner!
My cooking triumphs
*VICTORIA* The chili Andrew and I entered in a cookoff this past year was really great. Everyone loved it! I was also very proud when I made mozzarella stuffed chicken for Andrew one night and it came out perfect. *ANDREW* I'm always very proud of myself when I can properly feed a group of ten or more. Also, my first time attempting a dish from a cookbook: Jamie Oliver's mushroom-stuffed chicken breast, delicious!
My cooking tragedies
*VICTORIA* DO NOT add baking soda to spaghetti sauce. 'Nuff said. *ANDREW* Never try out something complicated on an oven you're unfamiliar with... in this case an oven that is 550 degrees on bottom and 325 on top. Lame.
