I'm just a 17 year old guy with a slightly disturbing obsession with food: just call me a foodie. I always had an inkling for cooking, due to the fact I would watch Food Network almost daily since I was 6. I like trying new things and broadening my horizon, who knows, one day I could be the next Iron Chef.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta... pasta... and more pasta. Pasta is like a blank canvas, you can create anything. It's definitely my favorite thing to cook. Wings, Sicilian pizza, and shrimp dishes are some of my other favorites, also.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a mostly northern family, so we love our lima beans and cornbread. Lima beans, slow cooked in ham hocks, and broth... with a buttered cornbread on the side. WINNING!
My cooking triumphs
FRESH pasta, and ravioli... a task that seemed difficult but proved to be the complete opposite. I even impressed myself when I won a steak competition between my big sis and I! I made an awesome T-Bone steak, seasoned with pepper and sea salt with butter on top. Delicious; and I haven't even started to talk about my smoked ribs.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making creme brulee one day... sadly, it was a disaster; but I will avail!
