I've cooked for myself since I've been supporting myself. I used to just cook to eat, but now I am learning to cook with fresh ingredients and to really enjoy the meal. I also like to cook different recipes, I rarely cook the same recipe twice.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna is a personal favorite. Meatloaf is also a favorite dish, but I always try something different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's potato salad is the best I've ever had, and the closest thing to a family tradition that I still follow. My mother's mother used to cook a lot of Swedish dishes, but most of them are a bit bland for my taste.
My cooking triumphs
Every time my guests and I enjoy the meal!
My cooking tragedies
Every time I've passed out with something in the oven or on the stove.
