Well, I'm in college. I enjoy cooking, reading, music, movies, games, TV, rafting and various other things. I like mixing things that one wouldn't expect to really fit together, like peanut butter and cheese, or habanero and wasabi (in a fusion I like to call Japexican).
My favorite things to cook
Snack foods, shakes, pizzas and quesadillas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I learned to bake from my grandmother, who learned to bake from her mother, who likely taught herself, considering the stories I hear don't speak of my great-great-grandmother as much of a domestic goddess. Our tradition is mostly to follow the recipe, substitute things we like when we see fit, and give away the pretty ones, while keeping the less aesthetically appealing (but still tasty) one for ourselves.
My cooking triumphs
I've got making milkshakes down to an instinctive art. Or maybe a science. Not quite sure which.
My cooking tragedies
Basically every attempt to make candy, and several spectacular failures when making sweets/confections.
