About this Cook
So i grew up in the American midwest, and unfortunately for me (and many others in the region) my horizons are therefore not very broad. Wanting to see the world and learn about life outside of the American bubble, I am becoming an international Au Pair. The problem... I cannot cook.
My favorite things to cook
Easy things that taste good of course :D. realistically, that isn't always possible. I like meats and yummy veggies, starches (midwestern gal xD) and anything that can impress.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No one in my family cooks apart from my mother, who I have not heard from in months. Our only 'family' dinner is Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
:O I made a cocovan. with WINE. AND REAL CHICKEN. AND PEOPLE ATE IT. and not a single death was reported >:)
My cooking tragedies
I exploded yogurt in the microwave. I also exploded syrup, a potato, a can of soup (wait, metal is bad?) fish sticks, and this bread looking stuff from the back of the freezer. and water. one minute my pasta is happily steaming away, next moment BOOM
