Hello all! I'm 26 and live in Duluth, Minnesota. I love the outdoors and, of course, gazing out the window endlessly at Lake Superior. Music, the outdoors and cooking are my greatest passions. Being recently out of work I plan on trying out new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
In the summer I love participating in any sort of grilling...especially fish, kabobs and vegetables. In the winter I love using my crockpot and cooking unique soups that warm the soul! I don't often make the same recipes...I love the challenge of trying to cook new things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I currently have my own apartment with family being 5 hours away. So for myself I love cranking some jazz music or rhythm and blues, cracking open a bottle of wine, and chopping fresh ingredients like crazy in anticipation of cooking!
My cooking triumphs
I think my best triumph was when I made a German Bee-Sting cake. My critic was from Germany. I used a very old recipe that turned out to be quite tedious! But hey, I got raving reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I think my most recent tragedy occurred last week. I was preparing a watercress and orange soup. I put it in the blender, turned it on high, and THEN realized the lid wasn't on tight. My boyfriend dipped his finger into the soup on the cupboard and tried it...apparently it was "probably going to be pretty good!" *sigh* :)
