the first time i cooked by myself i was 6 years old. my parents worked, and me and my little sister got hungry! i made eggs the first time, then mac n cheese. one time my dad got home early, i was cooking scrambled eggs. i thought he would get mad so i put the pan in the closet, waited for him to go to bed (he worked graveyard). later when he was sleeping i took the pan, finished cooking the eggs, and they turned green!!! yukko! it was a cast iron skillet so maybe that's why they turned green.
My favorite things to cook
i love to use tofu in whatever i can! i love buckwheat too, it is soooo good and good for you.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my grandma taught me to make spaetzle. so when i make chicken "noodle" soup, i do spaetzle instead. it's sooo easy, just make watered down noodle recipe, and cut it into the soup. yummy.
My cooking triumphs
my pizza. i use a stone, make a dough using beer, and use cornmeal on the pan. use lots of sauce, and fresh veggies. my tofu "french fries" my 7 year old just loves! i bread them in flour or cornstarch, and make a sauce with ketchup and mayo, and horseradish. he eats almost the whole batch by himself!
My cooking tragedies
geez, i cannot think of one except for the green eggs!
