I started cooking when I left the nest for college and was forced to find nourishment all by myself. Thank God I found this website or else I would have starved to death!
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and easy, especially if it involves ingredients that I have on hand.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We cooked a lot of stir-frys, curries, and Southeast Asian influenced dishes.
My cooking triumphs
World's Best Lasagna - time consuming, but soooo worth it.
My cooking tragedies
A Good Easy Garlic Chicken - I've tried to make this 4 times because I always have the ingredients on hand. The recipe is supposed to be simple to make, but I seem to never be able to make it right. When I go to saute the chicken in the butter, my house gets extremely smokey and the chicken tastes dry with bits of black, burnt sections. What am I doing wrong?!
