I am a twenty-something on the road to culinary discovery with my hubz by my side.
My favorite things to cook
White Trash Truffles
Sweet 'n Sour Chicken
Rice and Gravy (fattiest. dish. ever.)
Chocolate Chip Cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family always make sweet and sour chicken for the ladies' birthdays. For the men's birthdays, my father makes grilled babyback ribs.
I make chocolate chip cookies for my sister's and mother's birthdays as they both despise cake.
My cooking triumphs
I made a Harry Potter themed cake for my older sister with a stencil and silver cake graffiti- it turned out great!
I made Cheddar Bay Biscuits for the first time on 09/03/10 and they turned out *perfect* the first time!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make caramel apples- the recipe stated to wait until the caramel turned to the color of Coca-Cola before turning the boil to a simmer. I burned the out of the caramel and I'm pretty sure it took us a good week to get the smell out.
