Hey I'm retro_fiend a 17 year old young woman who loves cooking. I've been experimenting in the kitchen ever since I was 5 and haven't put the pots and pans down yet. Cooking is like therapy to me and I love the smiles on peoples faces when they taste something good that I've made. I think Allrecipes is an awesome site and I hope it helps me become a better cook over the next few years.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things to cook are Skillet Lasagna, Tuna casserole, any type of desserts, and I love creating my own pizzas Yum ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Thanksgiving time, while about family, food is also a big part of our tradition just like most parts of the U.S. My mother makes everything from turkey to cornbread based dressing, macaroni and cheese...basically the works.
My cooking triumphs
My best dish has got to be the skillet lasagna I made once. It was really tasty but it was very, very expensive.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making rolls for Thanksgiving once and I don't really know what went wrong but they weren't edible at all. I also tried making a cake from scratch for my mother's birthday. I actually got the recipe from this site but it was really dry and not sweet enough. I don't blame them though..it was my first time. Hopefully I can improve upon these in the near future.
