While I have always done some cooking, I never REALLY cooked much until my husband and I started living together. Since then, we have built up a repertoire of recipes we love. We have gotten to the point where we don't even like to eat out much because we know we can make something better at home.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying out new recipes all the time, especially from different cultures. I love being able to travel through food and find it comforting to know that I have some great recipes at my disposal for when I want to mix things up a bit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will always remember making holiday cookies with my mom and sister and learning the different intricacies of different cookie doughs. I hope to one day carry on those traditions with children of my own.
My cooking triumphs
Filet Mignon with goat cheese and balsamic glaze... A Giada de Laurentiis recipe that sounded irresistible.
My cooking tragedies
Ina Garten's Brownie Pudding... I tried this recipe twice and it just never set up right.
