So I have a terrible flaw. I cannot accurately assess my abilities. For some reason I think I am superwoman!
My little sister recently graduated from high school. I thought to myself.. "I want to do something special for her". So i decide to make a cake. …
I am 22 years old and I just started seriously cooking about a year ago. I am very much in love with a man who can take care of himself... just not very well. He tries though. =) My mom was more of an open-a-can type of cook so I learned everything I know from intuition and of course Allrecipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Greek food and anything with spinach. I just love that green stuff. Mmm
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom does not really enjoy spending much time in the kitchen, however every Christmas she puts on her oven mitts and get down to business. She makes the most wonderful cranberry bread and gets many requests for it. She would always pull my sisters and me into the kitchen with her to help out. We would chop the cranberries while she talked about how she and our grandma would do the same thing when she was a child.
My cooking triumphs
The first meal I cooked when I moved into my own place was a pot roast. I had never made a pot roast before but i wanted to break in my new crockpot. (I Love My Crockpot). My BF devoured three plates and said it was better then his mother's. (The highest complement from him)
My cooking tragedies
=/ I had just started cooking when my BF and his friends came over for their annual get together. I was preparing chicken parmasian for them. So many things went wrong... I had marinated the chicken so none of the flour would stay on, the batter stuck to the frying pan and to top it all off When i served it it was still pink in the middle. oi.. bad night.. i almost gave up cooking. lol
