I am currently pursuing a PhD in Music History, and love the extra time my degree offers me to cook for my beautiful wife of (almost) 4 years!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make spicy foods: curry, Mexican food, Southern dishes like jambalaya, etc. I'm also a great baker, and am always coming up with new cookie recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum taught me how to make cookies, and I have been improving on her recipes since I moved out on my own. My dad also makes his own eggnog from scratch every Christmas, and it is outstanding!
My cooking triumphs
I made a wassail for this past year's Christmas party and it was a huge hit. I also made all of the appies and desserts myself (with some help from All Recipes!), and had numerous requests for recipes. It's so much more rewarding than just reheating store-bought purchases!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried making ribs, and somehow got the measurements wrong. I put in far too much paprika, and neither my wife nor I could eat the ribs. We tried, since ribs are so expensive, but they were terrible!
