I'm a recent college graduate who earned a degree in Gender Psychology. I am a proud domestic feminist with a profound passion for cooking. I like to think that cooking for others is my way of showing them just how much I love them <3 Oh yeah, and I think bacon makes everything better, although right now my cooking focus is to cook within seasons.
My favorite things to cook
meatballs, any kind of sauce: hollandaise, marinara, cream sauces, you name it I'm interested in it, I guess you could say I'm saucy :)
scalloped potatoes, soups, sushi, brushetta, salsa, egg concoctions
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family was super poor when I was a kid, living in low income housing projects, the whole nine yards... the brightest side to all of it was that we couldn't afford to eat out a lot, so instead my parents experimented with all sorts of homemade treats and dinners. I didn't even try McDonald's until I was 9 years old, and I remember telling my mother that I never wanted to go back there again. A few of my families favorite cooking traditions include:
a green bean concoction, swedish meat balls, hong kong special, pizza, chocolate zuchinni bread, and snickerdoodle cookies. There are many more but these are my favorite.
My cooking triumphs
People Love my "World Famous" scalloped potatoes. Often my sisters will only come visit if I make them eggs benny for breakfast, and my father told me at my youngest sisters wedding that my meatballs made the whole shindig a success. I am a cook who obsesses over a recipe until it's absolutely perfect. However, I never write out my recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Once while cooking a large batch of brownies at my families cafe, I mistakenly added five cups of salt instead of five cups of sugar to the batter. WORST BROWNIES EVER! Also I am terrible at poaching eggs...
