I like learning about food.
I want to learn about nutritional value of all food items from herbs to spices to proteins and fibers on.
And I want to learn how to use that knowledge to better myself and my friends.
Learning to cook is the first step!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook different styles of food from all over the world.
I'm always looking for new things to try OR ways to use the ingredients I ALREADY have in ways that taste AWESOME.
I'm not scared to try anything once... and I have had some that were one-time-only experiences.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family recipes are egg casserole, green bean casserole, fried eggplant, banana bread. My parents didn't cook much, but these were holiday and celebratory staples.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting roasted potatoes.
Butternut squash, apple, bacon, chicken melt with Asiago cheese.
Split pea soup! Butternut squash soup!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to cook a whole chicken in my crock pot for over 8 hours on low... its still haunting me.
