I am a student in Northern California and I, although not a very good at cooking, I have started making recipes off this site... and learning the trade. :)
My favorite things to cook
Things with tons of carbs (dang the diet), fish, shrimp, chicken, tacos, anything thai or indian, and easy easy meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Crummy Spaghetti. My family makes it every palm sunday, and its the one thing i look forward to EVERY year, so much so that my family fedex's some to me when I cant be at the family party :)
My cooking triumphs
I'm a good baker.
