I'm a 28 year old female, who loves to learn new and fascinating things on just about any topic. I love cooking because you can be creative and bring joy to people with the dishes you create.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with fresh herbs. Fish and chicken are my favorite meats to cook with. Also breaking into the vegetarian realm with tofu recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from New England, my mom always made Boston style baked beans. She has used the recipe with just about every bean available. My favorite are the lima beans. She also makes Zucchini Relish each summer, which I have also started doing.
My cooking triumphs
Two dishes that never fail to impress are my Creamy Dijon Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and my Butternut Squash casserole. My stuffed mushrooms are usually a hit too.
My cooking tragedies
Meatloaf. It never comes out right for some reason.
