I'm not an expert cook, but trying to learn. I love to eat and have a major sweet tooth. My dessert experimentation has made megain about 10lbs so far.
My favorite things to cook
I usually cook simple recipes... anything that goes over rice or pasta like jambalaya, curries, etc. I love making dessert, but 1/2 the time doesn;t turn out as I'd like. Still learning.
My cooking triumphs
Making beignets and having them puff up perfectly.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make homemade brownies. I think the store bought mixes have perfected it, and have not found a recipe that even comes close... even from very nice bakeries.
