I'm 19 & still living with my parents. my grandmother was the one who actually got me into cooking (and sewing too) and since her death i've been more and more interested in cooking.
My favorite things to cook
at the moment my favorite things to cook are pastas, though i have just learned the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family has recently began doing something different for thanksgiving in the past 4 years. we go out to the desert (dirt bike & atv riding) and since we're in a trailer we deep fry our turkey. the best thing about it is that since the turkey is being cooked outside, the pies get to be baked inside so when we're eating dinner, we can smell the pies finishing their baking. :D
My cooking triumphs
so far i have perfected the grilled cheese sandwich, caesar salad, and other salads. currently working on broadening my knowledge, hope to someday be as diverse in my cooking as my grandmother
My cooking tragedies
last year i completely screwed up matzoh balls. past the point of recognition. it was sad.
