I am 27 have never been around very serious cooks until my twenties. I am super-duper particular about what I eat. So what I do is take the a little instinct and combine the best of my favorite recipes and my favorite ingredients to create only the best foods!
My favorite things to cook
Things that taste fresh.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have none, thats why I am kind of breaking the mold in my family.
My cooking triumphs
90% of all recipes I try for the first time are awesome. My Dad wants me to go gourmet. Thats pretty fun.
My cooking tragedies
I made my "famous chili" for a huge group of people, that I had never met, in a new crock pot, that belonged to a friend of mine. The light came on and so I thought the crock pot was on. I found out at the very end that it wasn't on and my chili was runny. They said they liked it, but I was dissappointed.
