I'm a 27 year old school librarian in New Jersey. I've been cooking since I was pretty young, helping my mother, grandmother and aunties cook. I started making dinner for my family when I was about 12.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies. I am also a new slow cooker fan and am learning to make a few recipes in the crockpot. I love soup and stews all winter, and want to learn to make casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our wonderful feasts on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Christmas Eve lasanga made by my sister and I.
My cooking triumphs
Coming up with some "signature" recipes that my friends all love. Fajitas, chicken cacciatore, and the chocolate chip pumpkin bread I stole from this site! Ha ha! It's my new holiday tradition.
My cooking tragedies
I've made some really horrible stuff in the slow cooker while learning how to use it!
