I'm the eldest child of 6 in my family, with two full-time working parents. I'm also 24 years old, so I've been at the family cooking game for more than a decade now.
I'm currently a graduate student at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. I'm studying to gain my Ph.D in Chemistry!
Being someone who loves experiments, I try to come up with quick (because I'm so very busy) recipes anyone can make. I'm also not the richest of individuals, so most of my meals cost me less than $10 and provide me with at least 2 meals!
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles with beef or chicken, bakery items (cookies, pies, etc.), inventing ways to 'spice up' simple boxed items
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge feasts for: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, New Years, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Casserole recipes made from things lying around.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt cookies. :(
