I am a cook-for-fun who enjoys cooking for my fiance and my 17 month-old son. I don't have as much time for cooking intricate meals as I would like so I especially enjoy recipes that seem intricate but are really quick and easy. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love trying world cuisine, especially Mediterranean and Indian food. I also enjoy baking cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have five brothers, so growing up we always had large meals that needed to be ready in a jiff. I was always amazed at the one pot meals that were so delicious -- great chicken noodle soup, beef stew, chili, spaghetti. Nothing gourmet, but it sure was delish.
My cooking triumphs
My fiance asked me to make my jambalaya again.
My cooking tragedies
I find it most tragic when I make something wonderful, but forget how I made it.
