I am almost 24 years old and have always enjoyed cooking. I always used to watch and help my Grandma cook when I was younger so I could learn. Now, I take a lot of the old traditions that I remember and make them on a healthier scale.
My favorite things to cook
I love finding great ways to use vegetables and fruit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili, lemon chicken, pastas, dinner rolls.
My cooking triumphs
I do not like to have a lot of things in my cabinets. So when I read a lot of recipes, there are typically ingredients in there that I do not have. In this case, I love to find great substitutions.
My cooking tragedies
My roommate and I made a really awesome blackberry wine cake once. Then I tried to make it again when she was not there. This time I had bought a cake mix that had dried egg white mixture in a separate package from the cake part. I wasnt thinking and put both of the packs in and still put in the required eggs for the recipe otherwise. This cake turned out so heavy and gross that I threw it out because it didn't seem edible and I was embarrased to bring it to the in-laws house!
