My favorite things to cook
I love slow cooking, and I love spices. Especially indian flavors. I find great joy in roasting and grinding my own spices.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family likes to eat a lot of junk. I think I am the only one who enjoys vegetables!
My cooking triumphs
probably thanksgiving in 05. i went out the night before and had a little too much to drink. I came home and pre-prepared what I could, but I had left the turkey on the floor in the kitchen. I went to sleep really early in the morning and woke up to my thanksgiving guests (12 family members) knocking at my door... The reason why this is a triumph rather than a tragedy is because I managed to pull it off. everyone had a great time and enjoyed their dinner, regardless of how hung over I was...
My cooking tragedies
