About this Cook
Hola! My name's Sasha. I'm a 22-year-old woman living in south Florida that's in love with the idea of cooking. I wanted to be a chef growing up and it appears that latent passion hasn't left me entirely. I'm browsing and collecting recipes for now, but someday hope to try the gems I find out. I'll have a lot of fun and gain a ton of experience thanks to other users, so thank you all for contributing.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking things that don't have me juggling too much. I take no issue with a lot of prep, but when it's time to cook, I get a little flustered. Dishes like lasanga meet my criteria.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My household tends to switch between traditional Jamaican fare and... not-so-Jamaican fare. We'll have ackee and saltfish one day and meatloaf on another. Or maybe on the same day! That was pretty cool. I think that aside from just being open-minded, it helped me appreciate foods from all sorts of backgrounds. My mom also made this incredible cheerio and peanut butter based treat when I was little. I'll never forget those. They were incredible. Maybe I'll put the recipe up someday. :)
My cooking triumphs
I made lasanga and crepes once! That's not to say they were amazing, but they were pretty good all things considered.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making a white candy once and that ended badly. The name escapes me, but the concept was similar to meringue. I still ate it, of course. lol.

Honey Fried Chicken
I made this today and my family and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I used chicken wings separated at the joints, didn't dry each piece, used all-purpose seasoning instead of bouillon granules I didn't have, and it still came out great. That said, I would like some cayenne pepper (and additional seasonings) in my flour mixture for added flavor. This dish is versatile and fairly simple to execute! I'll be trying variations in the near future.

Spicy Crispy Beef
I used to make this recipe ages ago and was reminded of it thanks to an ex (they're not ALL bad). I recall it was delicious and not terribly difficult to prepare, so I'll definitely be making spicy crispy beef again. :)
