I'm American but currently living in France. I am new to cooking, so I am still discoving differnt recipes and different methods for cooking simple and ordinary iteams. I learned to cook from my French mother-in-law, but have branched away from that since discoving this website. For me, cooking is about make good yet healthy food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make breads. As a child, my mother, every year, always made pumpkin, banana, and zucchini bread, so now I am continuing that tradition. Also, I love to bake sweets, but I am not a big fan of eatting them, so I always send them to work with my husband.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Other than making homemade breads, I cannot think of a favorite family cooking tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I am not very confident as a cook, therefore, whenever I make something that turns out good, I am very content.
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, I am very nervous when cooking for other people, so my tragedies tend to happen when cooking for guests. The worst has to be when I tried to make strawberry filled crepes and the strawberries were bad and thus the crepes turned out to be bad, too. Also, I made an Indian dish for my cousin and only at the end of the dish did I realize that I under cooked the rice. Luckily, my cousin was polite and didn't say anything, but it's was still a disaster.
