I am attending University and currently studying Criminology in the hopes of becoming a Police Officer. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, playing basketball and spending time with family and friends. "Cook from the heart or don't cook at all."
My favorite things to cook
Chicken wings, pastas, stews, fried plantain, fufu.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family we eat mostly west African meals, when having meals together we all join in to cook. It is a lot of fun and good quality family time.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest cooking triumph was cooking the thanksgiving dinner all on my own last year to surprise my relatives. It was a lot of work, but everything was ready on time and tasted just like mom would make it!
My cooking tragedies
Every cook has at least one cooking tragedy, mine would have to be the time I confused the sugar and the salt while making vanilla cupcakes, I added 1 teaspoon of sugar and almost 2 cups of salt! I definitely learned from that mistake and now have all my ingredients labeled clearly!
