About this Cook
Having a severe latex allergy, I've never been able to dine out often (you never know if those preparing your food are going to wear latex gloves), and the glue sealing pre-made ingredients can prove fatal as well, so I not only learned to cook from scratch out of a love for the art as well but out of necessity as well. I've been baking and cooking since I could wield a spoon and spatula, and while I no longer consider the culinary path as the career for me, I'm lucky to have found a wonderful fiance to share every meal with whom I'm convinced loves the home-cooked dinners I serve almost as much as he loves me.
My favorite things to cook
As a long-time vegetarian I like to make meat-free versions of delicious classics. Cruelty-free lasagna, stuffed peppers, enchiladas, and more are all part of my repertoire. My favorite cooking style is a mash-up of Italian and Mexican cuisine while I avoid using tropical fruit at all costs (yuck!).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have any long-standing culinary traditions. My parents tended to either eat out or throw together convienence food for most every meal during my youth until I got a little older and developed my allergy. Judging by the quality of fast-food and pre-made meals that sounds like a an absolutely dreadful way to live to me.
My cooking triumphs
I like to think every delicious, home-cooked meal is its own reward.
My cooking tragedies
Have you ever spent a long time making a pan of lasagna for your loved ones, then as your dishing it up, drop the last piece (yours) on the floor and had to go hungry? It sucks.
