I grew up eating your standard mix of American and German foods, so when I got older and into a kitchen of my own, I found that I liked to experiment with the most exotic foods I could come up with!
My favorite things to cook
I'm really good at vegetarian foods, but love cooking game meat like venison, boar and the like! I can make the best sweet and spicy wings ever... from squirrel! Indian food is another favorite of mine, and my curry is almost legendary!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lasagna! My mom used to make it when I was young... that and meatloaf. The Tegges family meatloaf recipe is a closely guarded secret.... and it is AMAZING!
My cooking triumphs
My goat or chicken curry, "drop your pants lasagna" which has actually gotten me a few marriage proposals, and any time I make quiche, no matter what variety!
My cooking tragedies
Once I was making my family's meatloaf for a man I was dating, and somehow we got a bit distracted from the stove and didn't hear the timer go off! By the time we got to it, it was so overcooked that we decided to just scrap it and go to the dining hall on campus! Cooking tragedy, but a good laugh none-the-less!
