I'm a pretty simple 24-year-old, I recently regained my interest in cooking and I'm loving every moment. I love cooking for my boyfriend of over five years, I am thankful that he enjoys being a guinea pig ! I sit at a desk ALL day so when I come home I enjoy getting my hands, and kitchen, nice a dirty. Over the winter I'm hoping to learn how to sew. Which will be a challenge since I get to teach myself! :D
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, it's a wonderful stress reliever. I recently learned how to make homemade pie so I have been going crazy trying to raise my skill level.
I also just purchased a slower cooker, this is a whole new world to me. How did I live without this for so long?
I absolutely love learning to cook new things (which isn't hard when you don't know much). I just need to accept the fact that every single thing I cook isn't going to be perfect on the first try!
My favorite family cooking traditions
TV Dinners... Haha I know a few Thanksgiving recipes from my Grandmother, I always loved cooking with her all day Thanksgiving when I was a child. She owned a home with efficiencies, so we could cook with 3 stoves! Only now do I realize what a luxury that was!
Then again empty efficiencies = extra roommates.
My cooking triumphs
Apple Pie, Chili, Chili Baked Chicken & SALSA!
My cooking tragedies
Boston Creme Pie! Grrrr...
