I'm 19 years old and studying to become a Pediatrician. Ahhhh. I love to cook as a hobby, I love using the utensils for specific things like baking a cake, chopping and dicing, and rolling out dough. Besides that, I love to draw and make music, I used to play a guitar until I broke the string. I love allrecipes, it's my favourite recipe site, other than justapinch and watching the food network.
My favorite things to cook
Things that need a lot of down time and preparation, it makes it worth it in the end. I love baking and my favourite thing in the world to make is Spaghetti - it may sound simple but I always do something different each time I make it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad and I would always start up the grill when I was little and we'd barbecue chicken and steam fish in foil paper, we'd stuff the fish with green peppers, butter, onions, and anything else to get it tasting amazing.
My cooking triumphs
The time I made a meatloaf all by myself, I used 2 recipes from this site and combined them to make it into my own and I added different things as well. It was a good attempt for a first try and my mom applauded me.
My cooking tragedies
When I first tried to make rice I didn't know how to, I've never read how I just saw my mom and dad putting water in the pot and leaving it on the stove. I wasn't aware of how much water or rice you should put and that there was a ratio kind of measurement to be done so the first time I made rice I put more rice than water and it was horrible.
