Now in grad school, I have been cooking since third grade when my dad taught me how to scramble eggs.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, breads, American food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family, my dad always did most of the cooking, and wanted steak about four times a week, so I very quickly learned if I could make it, I could eat it.
Some of our favorite family dishes are our chili, meatloaf, and crepes.
My cooking triumphs
Improv. My best improvised recipes have been my pumpkin pie, meatloaf, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, devilled eggs, french toast and bread pudding.
