I am a Marine officer and LOVE to cook! My Marines are usually the test subjects when I try new recipes. I really love baking and work hard on perfecting cookies. I was raised as a vegetarian, and while I am not one currently, I am always looking for good vegetarian recipes. I am single and my cat just doesn't appreciate my cooking, as she likes her cat food more.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is Peaches and Cream Pie. Mainly it is my favorite to bake because it is my favorite to eat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are just some recipes that remind me of growing up...peaches and cream pie, pumpkin pie, learning how to make pie crust from my aunt, my dad making omelette for dinner (he makes the best ones ever!).
My cooking triumphs
For the past three years, I have hosted Thanksgiving at my house. I use a turkey recipes from All Recipes and it turns out perfect every time! I was really proud of my first Thanksgiving, but it keeps getting better every year.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a tofu parmesean recipe and it tasted okay, but was less than visually appealing. I still need to figure out the best way to cook with tofu!
