About this Cook
I never was interested in cooking until I entered graduate school. Now I do it for therapy!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food with lots of zest and spice. I love spicy and seasoned food but not too much salt. Cooking foods are fun for me although my partner makes fun of me. ;) I just enjoy the creativity of cooking and appreciate the artistry and thought although I am no expert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has a history of cooking simple, tasty, and hearty dishes. My mom and my grandma love/d cooking red meats, potatoes, and hearty and spicy veges.
My cooking tragedies
Cornbread with corn cream. It was awful. My partner spat it out and he is always very generous with his compliments. That was many many years ago when I knew nothing and didn't know what the big deal was when I cooked it in a non equal dish. It was awful, I agreed.

Floating Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad
Not bad but very sweet. My mom has made this salad for as long as I can remember. For a more tart version cut the sugar to a pinch and the balsamic altogether.
