I moved out on my own in September 2009, and started the adventure of cooking own my own. In September 2010 my long-term boyfriend and I moved into an apartment together, and cooking dinner is one thing we get to do everyday together.
I lvoe cooking, it is my favorite part of the day, and which each meal I get better and better :)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking different chicken dishes, and baking, I love to bake!
I am also a HUGE fan of quinoa. I have it almost everyday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, I am responsible for making the cranberry sauce (from scratch, obviously), and when we go to my grandmothers house, it is my job to stir the gravy :)
Even now that I am older, these are still my jobs around that time of year.
My cooking triumphs
At this point in my life, every meal is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
As of right now, my biggest failure in the kitchen was trying to make Sheppards Pie, but covering it when I put it in the oven and the mashed potatoes turned to liquid. We called it "Sheppards Stew"
