I am a young cook. I am just learning to cook and totally loving it. I have asian culture in my background and love learning how to cook things. As well as asian foods, I pretty much love anything loaded with carbs: pasta, bread, deserts! YUM!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE making deserts of all kinds. I also enjoy making pasta dishes and cassaroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorite family cooking traditions would have to be making "Christmas Bread" with my grandma and mom every year. Christmas bread is this super yummy, buttery, bread filled with candied fruit. You can try it, it's labled under "Stolen" in the joy of cooking.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumphs are in baking. I have made hundreds of cookies and cakes.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking tragedies, too many to name. One in particular stands out. Okay, so you know those frozen potstickers, so yummy right. Well I was suppsed to make those for dinner, simple right? Well I put them in the pan, and then got a mug for the water. Well I decided to eyeball it. I filled the mug to the top and put it all in. It looked like soup but I figured all the water would just evaporate. When my dad came home he decided to check on them, well we had soggy, mushy dumplings, opps.
