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.
