My favorite things to cook
I love making; banana nut muffins, grilled pork tenderloin, acini, stir fry, any kind of grilled fruit, chicken wings, rolls, and almost any kind of chicken. I do not deep fry things in my kitchen but am open to trying almost anything else.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving my mom's entire family gets together and everyone has their certain dishs they bring, whoever hosts that year is responsible for turkey, gravy, and stuffing. My mom always is responsible for dessert, which ends up being about 7 pies! I loved growing up and helping her make them a day or two before Thanksgiving...and then I loved eating them more than anything else that day : )
My cooking triumphs
I was really excited when I finally was able to create crispy hot wings without frying them. Also, I was very proud that recently my first batch of homemade rolls turned out amazing! I also love when I am able to make my mom's recipes as good if not better than she does.
My cooking tragedies
I absolutely can not cook white rice on the stove, I know it sounds silly but I can not do it. Without my rice cooker I would be lost. I also am not a great baker, I'm more of a "pinch of this, dash of that and hmmm why not some of this" kind of cook. Soon I would like to master the art of homemade dressing, but so far no luck.
