About this Cook
I'm 25 years old, My step dad was the one always keeping me in the kitchen and teaching me the tricks of the trade. I recently decided the going to culinary school is my next big move. I have 2 younger brothers and the best friends and support system so I heading for some big changes and super excited!
My favorite things to cook
I love Asian, Mexican and Italian foods. Honestly anything full of flavor is my style of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I try to cook something new every Sunday.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmother makes the best Spanish rice I have ever tasted and I have tasted millions... I could never seem to get it right I would follow her step by step and nothing! It was so frustrating, but I finally got it down! I even took pictures the day it came out!
My cooking tragedies
I think my Spanish rice was a constant let down, The first time it came out right I didn't want to make it again thinking it might come out bad! But I can't wait for a new tragedy because that is the best way to learn!
