I'm Christina, and I'm a first year college student. I became a pescetarian 2 years ago and I love cooking and baking for my family at college as well as back home.
My favorite things to cook
I like experimenting with different pestos and sauces for things like pasta, pizza, and bruschetta. Stir-frying veggies is always a really good and quick dinner at college. At home my favorite things to cook are gnocchi, stuffed mushrooms, pies and tartlets, veggie burgers and cakes. Also, I really, really, LOVE to bake. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is Chilean, so some of the things her family cooked were empanadas, sopapillas, empolvados, and sopa de mariscos. My mom always bakes some of her own recipes during the holidays like striped dessert.
My cooking triumphs
I made my boyfriend cupcakes for his birthday and put all of his favorite things in it. It was a double vanilla cupcake with chocolate whipped cream filling, a graham cracker crust, and a toasted marshmallow frosting. They turned out really well and he loved them. :)
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made scallops, I had no prior knowledge of how to cook them. I over-cooked them and they were absolutely horrible.
