I'm 22, married, and a senior in college. My major is Nutrition and Dietetics.
My favorite things to cook
Down-home southern cooking! I also love to cook mexican food (it's kind of southern! :p) Baking is really my favorite thing to do, but I only get to do it on the weekends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turning leftovers into casseroles!
My cooking triumphs
My favorite foods are all southern comfort foods - but those are also some of the least healthy. I've learned in school where to make substitutions in recipes to keep the soul food flavor, but cut out the fat and cholesterol. My biggest triumph? Delicious, moist brownies made with sweet potatoes instead of shortening!
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I get carried away in the moment when I'm mixing ingredients, and don't read the recipe all the way. I end up putting all the cheese or milk or whatever in when I'm supposed to wait and put it on top or add it halfway through cooking or something. Oops!
