I'm 21 and just starting to enjoy cooking, especially from scratch. However, lack of tools, and lack of food ingredients makes it hard to learn new recipes and make changes.
I don't knit, but I do crochet.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast foods. Sweet treats. Eggs that are either fried or scrambled with a heavy dose of ground pepper, no salt.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any traditions. Growing up, the food I ate either came from out of a can or baggy, the school cafeteria, or from a fast food restaurant. I'm trying to break that cycle by learning as many recipes as I can that don't involve boxed/overly processed ingredients.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally managed to flip a pancake at just the right moment and let it cook all the way through. That was a challenge. Also, when I was little I took part in a Pillsbury Baking Contest. I didn't win, but at least my recipe made it into getting judged at all. Too bad one of the main parts of the recipe came out of a box.
My cooking tragedies
When I accidentally bought Blackberries instead of Blueberries and forgot to put in the baking powder in the Muffin Recipe I like. It was only my second time making them. They were yucky. Blackberries may be good by themselves or in other recipes, but I don't want them in my muffins.
