I'm 23 and happily married to my soulmate, going to school for a degree for botany and enjoying every step of the way! I'm into big music and cool video games and metaphysical stuff and all things full of beauty and love and bright colors. :D
My favorite things to cook
I love making creamy, rich things. I love making pasta dishes and desserts...I love preparing juicy meat and unlocking the maximum potential of vegetables and grains. My favorite is old-world, authentic homestyle dishes from around the world!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up in the foothills of East Tennessee, my 90-year-old great-grandmother raised me on chicken 'n dumplings and beans 'n greens and the most delicious things ever. The other half of my family comes from Palestine and Lebanon and fed me hummus and tabbouleh and kibbeh lamb with bulgur and more of the most delicious things ever. I'm the master of all of these!
My cooking triumphs
Those Root Beer Cookies. All my molded salads. That Irish Lamb Stew with two cans of Guinness in it!
My cooking tragedies
My last attempt at artisan bread. ;_;
