I like to bake, cook, and eat healthy food. However, some foods are irresistible. Puppy chow, cookies, and grilled cheese.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make isn't something I cook. I love making fresh guacamole. It seems to go with any type of food as a great side dish, or snack. Yummy and healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies at Christmas-time with my mom.
My cooking triumphs
Since I am now living in Costa Rica, I am learning all the typical dishes of the country. So far I have mastered empanadas and gallo pinto.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a kid, I tried making cookies with a friend. I read the salt as needing 1 cup and 1/2, confusing it with the sugar amount. Needless to say, the cookie (it was one big cookie) was flat and didn't taste well at all. I now double check all measurements!
