I'm just getting a start in the world on my own. I live with my boyfriend in our first apartment in a small downtown area. I work at an academic library and am going to school to become a librarian. I'm trying to live a healthy lifestyle and they say it is 70% in the kitchen and 30% exercise, which works for me because I like to eat more than exercise. Some days cooking can be a workout in itself! I love trying new things and get bored cooking the same few things over and over again. I could happily go a month without eating the same thing twice. I'm here to learn and share with you!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things so it is hard to pinpoint one thing. I love my slow cooker though I only have a tiny one. I love to bake, mostly sweets, but decorating isn't quite my forte.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti is one of those all time favorites because it was the first thing I ever cooked on my own (though it was pretty bad--I was 10 in my defense!) I learned to cook by watching my mom so I learned a few tips there but have developed my own style over the years.
My cooking triumphs
Cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner in my dorm room all by myself! That was pretty exciting for me. Though touching the turkey and pulling out the insides really did gross me out.
My cooking tragedies
Garlic bread. I'd only watched people make and had never tried to before. The first time I tried I put so much garlic we ended up throwing it all away. no one got past the forst bite!
