Rock and Roll afficionado, Former radio morning show host, now a manager for an international grocery chain. 29, Married. I just like to make sure we eat healthfully, at a good price. Fortunately, where I work makes that VERY possible!
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything as long as it doesn't involve dirtying every cooking utensil and piece of cookwear in the house. Creativity and inspiration in as few steps as possible! And spicy is always good :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
PAH! Cooking traditions?
My cooking triumphs
I am very proud of my meatloaf recipe, baked mac and cheese, and pumpkin cookie recipe. I've had a 7-year-old tell me my pumpkin cookies are the best cookies he's ever had!
I'm also the queen on tossing some random veggies, rice, and who knows what together with just-as-random seasonings and having it come out great.
My cooking tragedies
Mostly cosmetic defects. Never had anything taste horrible.
My philosophy on cooking is this: As long as it's cooked so as not to be health-hazardous, everything else is just flavor and prettiness. As long as I'm cooking for just me and my fiance, I don't mind if it's ugly or less-than-stellar.
