Hello- My name is Frances. I'm about to be a first-time mom, and I love to cook. I've cooked for ethnic and fine dining restaurants, and I really like to make new types of food, as well as classic American stuff, like potato salad. Amazingly, I'm better at making things up in my head than I am at following recipes (especially baking recipes). I could definitely be a better baker!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken curry, anything that involves potatoes, and cold salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sauteed cabbage, fried fish, "soggy" burritos.
My cooking triumphs
Really good at pork chops. I use sweet Spanish smoked paprika in my breading. Yum!
My cooking tragedies
Eggs. I'm not good at them! I always over cook them. My boyfriend can make a mean omlette, though!
