I love to try new recipes, but I dont like buying an ingrediant for just a Tablespoon. I like to know many different things to do with that ingrediant. I find it hard, being new to having a kitchen of my own and not my moms, learning how to stock it, for the food that i like to cook, without being wasteful.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make things that look, sound or taste fancier then they really are. I love to impress without all the fuss.
My cooking triumphs
My first thanksgiving dinner. Although i took several shortcuts, the food was fabulous, and a 19 year old cooking thanksgiving, for 10 people (only expected 7) on short notice, I was proud.
My cooking tragedies
Meatloaf, that turned into grease soup. Many way to salty dishes. Then there was that pot of chili that stuck so bad, I had to throw the pot away...
