I am 26 years old and just recently got into cooking. I live by myself, so I usually end up sharing my experiments with my friends and family and bringing my boyfriend the gift of baked goods every other week :)
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking vegetarian dishes, although I am not a vegetarian. I also like to try unusual recipes like chocolate cake with cayenne pepper, bacon cookies, and sweet potato burritos.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas my dad always used to make chocolate chip and maraschino cherry cookies, and I have made my own twist on the recipe of chocolate-chocolate chip and cherry cookies with cherry syrup.
My cooking triumphs
Sweet potato burritos which I make once a week, chipotle shrimp tacos, black bean and cream cheese burritos, coconut curry chicken, chocolate-chocolate chip cherry cookies, cherry vanilla dr pepper cupcakes, cranberry-walnut muffins and raspberry lemonade muffins.
My cooking tragedies
I made chipotle tilapia tacos once, and used WAY too much spice. They were so hot I couldn't eat them!
I tried making a Mountain Dew cake as well, but it was far too sweet/lemony for anyone's taste. In my defense, those were the first 2 things I ever made.
