My yummy Pork Dumplings!
About this Cook
Hey my name is Kristen! I'm 23 years old, and just getting the love to cook. Before, I used to live with my parents, and never had to worry about cooking. Everyday at 6:00 p.m. was dinner on the table, wether I wanted it or not. So now I live in a beautiful house with my boyfriend, and 4 dogs (I have enough space for them) I have to cook. And I'm tellin' ya! This website has been nothing but EXCELLENT TO ME!!!!!! So thanks to all the people who submitted the wonderful recipe. I'll submitt a few as soon as I get them down!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook italian food. Recently I almost perfected the Olive Garden alfreado sauce. It was alittle too sweet for me, but my boyfriend loved it. I also love to cook mexican food. I also need to post some recipes. My boyfriend is mexican, so I get tons, and tons, of recipes from his mother, and grandmother! Yummy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday my family gets together, and cooks a giant dinner. My mom started it when we were younger. And now she's gone to heaven, Iw ill alway continue this tradition!
My cooking triumphs
I'll get back at you with this one! :)
My cooking tragedies
Ohh man! The first time I fried chicken on my own. I was about 18. I took the frozen chicken wings out, and just threw them into the fryer, and greese started popping like there was no tomorrow! It was so scary. Next thing I know, the bubbles reach the rim! Thank god, I still had my mom around in my life, cause she saved my hands from being burned badly!

Filipino Lumpia
Ohh my goodness! ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME?!?!?!? These were "Tight", as my young friends (nieces and nephews) say! I used a sweet and sour sauce, with red pepper flakes. Yummy, till the last drop!

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)
Taste just like my local chinese hot spot! Very good! I will be making this again. Maybe for halloween. The egg looks like little ghost swimming in the soup! THANKS FOR SHARING!
