I have been cooking ever since I could see over the counter. I have a few specialties, but like the challenge of limited ingredients and needing a meal to feed my husband. I am a terrible baker. I never got the hang of measuring exactly and doing things in a specific order, I'm more of a one-pot wonder.
My favorite things to cook
Curry, chicken and rice mexican cassaroles, tacos (it's all about the toppings!), grilling, fried rice, hummus and taboule. Well, basically all ethnic foods!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, it takes weeks to plan with my family!
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered curry. And have created a fried rice that anyone will eat, vegetable and all.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot bake. Cakes spilt in half, cookies that don't rise, cracks in my cheesecakes. The only thing I seem capable of is muffins.
