I am 28 years old, and have been cooking as long as I can remember, starting with helping my mom and grandmas, and then trying things on my own once I moved away from home. I love cooking and especially trying out new recipes. My boyfreind loves trying my new dishes and helping me rate them. One of my boyfriend's single friends regularly comes over regularly to have dinner at our house. I enjoy cooking for a group of people, and am looking forward to cooking for my own family in the future.

My cooking triumphs
I invited my entire family to our house for Thanksgiving this year, and made the entire dinner myself. Everyone said that everything was delicious. I was very proud of myself for not screwing anything up and for having dinner on the table at the scheduled time!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a Chicken Leek Pot Pie, and it was one of the most horrible things I have ever tasted. We had to throw it away and order pizza because it was so terrible. The crust was terrible, the filling was terrible, it was all bad no matter how you looked at it.
