So, as of 3pm today I've been let go from my job. Fired, unemployed, the works. (sigh) I know that even if it didn't happen now it would've happened later. There's no way in hell I can sit at a desk and do absolutely nothing but pace around a  desk for 5 out of 8 hours a day. That's what you… MORE

So I guess this is a good excuse to get to work on this :) I'm suspended from work for spending to much time "reading material unrelated to work" which means I surfed on AR all day. Now I'm suspended pending discharge. Fun times!I suppose I should just start a little about me. I'm a kitchen… MORE

About Me
My name is Jackie. I just recently moved to Baltimore to live with my wonderful boyfriend. I've always had a passion for cooking and intend on culinary school one day if I can afford it. I'm a very technical based cook at the moment (i read cooking textbooks at night instead of books D:) but that's quickly changing now that I have to get dinner on the table every night. It's gonna take getting used to! I have to actually learn to do the things I've read about ahhhh!
My favorite things to cook
I love good soups and want to learn to make good crusty bread for them. I'm always looking for good salsas. Southwestern and asian are my fave kinds of foods to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is puerto rican and my grandmother was a great cook who unfortunately never wrote anything down. She tried to teach my mother how to cook but, bless her, she can't cook with out a microwave. So I'm afraid all those recipes have been lost :[
My cooking triumphs
The first meal I ever cooked for my boyfriend! We met close to valentines day and I told him I wanted to make dinner instead of all the hooplah that is valentines because we hadn't been together that long. I made all his favorites from scratch, lobster bisque, crab cakes, bacon wrapped shrimp, coconut jerk braised chicken, and strawberry mousse! I swear i took all day making it. I was terrified something would turn out bad but it came out great! That was the meal that completely conquered his heart and we've been together ever since :)
My cooking tragedies
I tried making andes mint chocolate chip cookies but I didn't have any baking soda/powder (whichever it is you put in them! ;x) and i read online you could use pancake mix to substitute(NOPE). so I scooped the cookies onto my baking sheet and instead of baking they liquified! Oh thank god for foil or that would've been hell to clean up.
