I first started on this website at the tender age of 15 years old. I love to cook. I have been using this website since 2001 and continue to evolve in cooking because of all of the recipies I have found.
My favorite things to cook
Speghetti and everything with gravy. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. It's amazing how I get sick and tired of leftover turkey and dressing during the weeks following Thanksgiving, but start craving it right around September. Everyone in my family makes at least one dish for Thanksgiving. I have not made the turkey yet... I am a little intimidated by big dishes like that. :)
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my boyfriend things he would not normally eat, but he winds up enjoying. He is the pickiest eater I have ever come to know, but I have not made that many dishes he has not liked... and believe me, he does tell me if he does not like it.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a gravy the other day. I had made the rue for the gravy and turned the stove off, or so I thought I did. I had actually turned it on high. My rue was ru-ined. :) Not only that, the house was so smokey you could not see your hand in front of your face.
