I'm 25, working on my MLIS degree at Florida State University (Go 'Noles!). I live part of the year in Tallahassee where I survive on campbell's condensed soups and grilled cheese sandwiches, and the other half of the year outside of Orlando with my wonderful boyfriend Jason, where the cooking gets quite a bit fancier.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas. I love getting my hands covered in sauce, the mess is part of the experience!
I also love making the roasted red pepper cream sauce and vodka sauce from this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making tortellini soup with my dad for any occasion. Making homemade buttermilk drop biscuits and sausage gravy chirstmas morning with my Granny.
My cooking triumphs
The Thanksgiving Turkey 2007!! My first time, and it was delish.
I also made a killer clam chowder a couple months ago, but felt like Paula Deen while making it. My arteries can't handle it again for awhile... :)
My cooking tragedies
Pastitisio. It sounded so good, it tasted so bad. We ordered pizza that night.
French Onion Soup. Jason liked it, I hated it. The sherry was just too strong for me.
