My name is Nekki. I'm a beginning cook that likes eating mostly but has found that cooking is pretty fun in the last few years. If its good, then I don't mine trying to cook it, but I really like trying stuff made from scratch.
Other than cooking, I'm a full-time college senior with a part-time job whose suppose to graduate May 2011. I worship God, like to read, and have 3 siblings.
What about you?
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook sweets, cajun/creole, and anything Southern from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any. I just started. My Mom is the big cook in our house.
My cooking triumphs
Probably the roux to a gumbo I made and the five-flavor pound cake I made from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
One of my biggest tragedies was a 3-layer chocolate cake that look like something but taste like nothing.
Another thing that can be considered a tragedy, I guess, is overplanning. I always plan to many dishes and have ingredients left over that I never end up using.
