I'm a very petite, 20-something redhead. I've learned most of what I know about cooking from my petite, 50-something brunette mom. I took a few cooking classes in high school, and have been experimenting here and there since then.
My favorite things to cook
Stir fried veggies & tofu or pork, vegetables tempura, fried rice, easy desserts, breakfast foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's roast beef with carrots and potatoes in delicious brown gravy, spanish rice and stuffed peppers, and pasta salads
My cooking triumphs
I've perfected my own version of "pink stuff" and I'll post the recipe here.
My cooking tragedies
One time when I was much younger I tried to make a vanilla cake for my brother's birthday, but it didn't rise, so we had "vanilla brownies." Everybody seemed to like them though, oddly enough.
