I'm 23 and currently in the Air Force stationed in Florida.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook authentic Mexican but anything ethnic is fine by me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom goes all out on any holiday and cooks all sorts of theme foods. It was always really fun to help out for days in the kitchen making her ideas come to the plate.
My cooking triumphs
I hosted Thanksgiving at my house last year with 10 people and nailed the turkey. It was perfect and a great night.
My cooking tragedies
When i first started cooking I tried to make these southwest style mini meatloaf patties. Well I made them entirely too thick so they were raw in the middle and charred on the outside because i also had the heat on too high. I had the smoke detectors go off and had to answer the door to my date amid all the confusion. Needless to say we went out. It was awful and beyond embarassing.
