I love to cook. I don't consider myself very creative in terms of painting or writing, but my creativity comes out in my meals. I cook when I'm in a bad mood because it usually puts me in a better frame of mind and I cook when I'm a good mood because when I'm feeling good, I believe it reflects in the end product.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new dishes and new techniques. Italian is probably my favorite.
My cooking tragedies
Believe it or not, I haven't had too many tragedies. I've had a cake or two that didn't rise properly and a few recipes I didn't care for the taste, but mostly it's all been good. I can't remember any crisis of major proportion...mostly little failures.
