I'm 24 years old and have been living by myself in Virginia the past 2 years. I'm a diehard Steelers fan....well Pittsburgh sports in general. I used to live off of the things like chef boyardee, frozen meals, ramen noodles, and campbells soup. One day I decided I wanted to try cooking. Talk about addicting......I cook almost every night of the week. I've made many bad dishes, but you learn along the way. That's why I'm on here.....and when I'm bored at work, this is a great site to explore :)
My favorite things to cook
I don't do desserts....I love trying new chili/soup recipes. I like making my own pizza from scratch...easy but fun. I'm not specifically into any particular thing to cook.....but I will say I love challenging recipes that take time and effort.
My cooking triumphs
So easy to make but.....Beef Bulgogi from this site with adjustments. Unbelievably good. I once made extremely good Hungarian Goulash....if only I remembered what I did that made it so good... :-/
My cooking tragedies
Total disaster.....I tried making gnocchi from scratch once. This was in my early stages as a beginner. I tried making vodka sauce once....it tasted like somebody just threw up in the pot. I tried making Crab Bisque once and it was awful. I'll just blame it on the recipe so I feel better about myself. This list could go on forever but I'll stop now
