My name is Jennfer. I like to cook when I have the time... and I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making hummus, pasta salad, guacamole, french dips, enchiladas, chili and egg casserole to name a few. I get an itch to bake on rare occasion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I grew up with my dad and he didn't cook much except Hamburger Helper :). My Italian grandfather used to let me help him make homemade pasta, olive salad and chili.
My cooking triumphs
People love my pumpkin pie (from real pumpkins!) and my chili. My hummus and olive salad are pretty awesome as well. Recently I've made good tilapia and a greek chicken pasta I found on this site that were both excellent.
My cooking tragedies
Giant chocolate chip cookie that caught on fire.
