I have been learning to cook on my own for about three years, since I got my first apartment in college. I love to cook for my friends and boyfriend. Being raised between Texas and Louisiana, I love Tex Mex and Cajun food the most! We have a very small kitchen (living in Manhattan), but we find a way to make it work :)
My favorite things to cook
Fajitas, stuffed shells, pasta dishes, desserts. I love trying new recipes and especially from different cultures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baked chicken and rice
Red beans and Rice
Grandmother's yeast rolls
My cooking triumphs
Enchiladas, homemade pizza, oreo balls, fried rice and homemade Chinese dumplings
My cooking tragedies
Didn't know how to make rice when I first started cooking! Once when trying to make spaghetti from scratch I accidentally added a half bottle of wine, and ended up evaporating it out for hours!
