I'm a young lady that usually cooks for two, but loves to cook for a crowd!! I love crafty things, scrapbooks, jewellery, cooking and things of the sort. I love to experiment with clean recipes and try to buy only natural ingredients!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE cooking healthy, clean entrees and delicious desserts with natural ingredients! I find it hard to stock EVERYTHING at all times, no space and only two people to shop for. I have found that living on my own has expanded my "thrifty creativity" - I work with what I have and am usually happy with the results.
My favorite family cooking traditions
LASAGNA! My mom always made the sauce fresh from scratch. No fillers and no fake ingredients. Only thing that made this dish "un-clean" would be the enormous amount of cheese she used. It's the one dish I accommodate for!
My cooking triumphs
I'm lactose intolerant and my boyfriend is gluten intolerant so accomplishing gluten free, dairy free (or low dairy) dishes that taste the same as regular ss the best feeling! I also try to find dairy substitutes that work like dairy... it's always a challenge, but when accomplished, so rewarding! Your food tastes great and you don't suffer afterwards.
My cooking tragedies
I don't honestly know where to begin.... burning out a microwave by using the "timer" on cook for far too long! Melting a cutting board to an element, burning several batches of cookies and toasted nuts over and over and over again - for the same dish! It happens, but you learn from it! Granted, all these "tragedies" were when I was about ten years old, so maybe I should count myself lucky!
