I'm 17 years old. I just graduated a year early from highschool. I live deep in the heart of Texas. I love all things centered around the home. I love growing my own vegetables and herbs to put into my personal recipes. :]
My favorite things to cook
I love Mexican food and Italian food. I find myself cooking pastas a great deal. I'm starting to get a greater intuition about flavors. I have been cooking for myself a couple years, and it's one of my passions, so I'm willing to try new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and her mother seem to have a natural talent at cooking. I like to take recipes from them. I inherited a collection of recipes from my great grandmother when I was younger, and I've started collecting recipes for myself. If someone is willing to teach me a recipe I love to accept them, so I'll have even more to pass down for my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
I'm best at making spaghetti, it is my specialty.
My cooking tragedies
I can't yet make hard candy. The first and last time I tried, it went horribly wrong.
