I've been using recipes from this website since 2009, but never thought to use my profile to store them...until my laptop recently crashed and I lost them all! I love discovering recipes from other cultures and experimenting with spices.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, soups, pies, cookies. I like to make up my own recipes from whatever I have on hand! I prefer to cook for others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of amazing European kitchen wizards. I grew up watching my mom at work, rolling out pie dough, pinching perogies, basting roasts and baking elaborate tortes. I also loved reading cookbooks as a child.
My cooking tragedies
It took many tries to make a proper pie crust. I've wasted tons of ingredients (shamefully) tying to crack the KFC secret.
