My name is Illy and I LOVE food!
I really started cooking a lot when I was in college because lets face it, cafeteria food is very bland and unhealthy and I love to spice it up a little while keeping myself healthy.
I love cooking with fresh vegetables and meats! Im not a huge fan of the frozen section or canned goods, unless it's corn, mushrooms and kidney beans!
I'm a 3rd culture kid, so in other words, I don't just cook one type of food but several different kinds! And I love it!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love my Grandma Dorans dumplings and Grandma Coats apple pie.
I think recipes that are passed down from generation to generation have a lot of meaning and taste better and better :)
My cooking triumphs
I think I would say the Moroccan recipes that I made from scratch and added my own touch too. I got a lot of compliments and requests
My cooking tragedies
As of now, I don't really have any cooking tragedies, but I'm sure something will come up!
