I’m currently serving in the military. I have a passion for cooking. It's one of the few things I'm truly passionate about. Something about being able to connect with people by doing something I enjoy is invaluable.
My favorite things to cook
I love my desserts! Always love to cook my homemade apple pie grandma gave me and my 7 layer bars. Also love making a grilled cheese. Don't you dare hate on a classic! I have fun impressing people and cooking traditional Indian dishes accompanied by homemade garlic naan. There are so many foods I love to cook I can't even begin to list them all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ah, my fondest memory seems to be making Christmas candies for all! Something about the holidays and cooking that makes me truly feel close to my family. Thanksgiving is another fun get together centered around food. My dad always loves making biscuits and gravy. I too have developed my own recipe for it.
My cooking triumphs
I have recently started experimenting with more vegetarian dishes to please some of my meatless friends. Surprisingly, many of these dishes are enjoyed by everyone including myself.
My cooking tragedies
When I use baking soda instead of powder or vice versa :) We won't talk about those though! Shhh!!
