Biology graduate student who loves to cook!
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, Chocolate pecan pie, Banana bread, Pastas, Polenta, Etoufee, Cajun-seasoned toast, Chicken cacciatore, Sea scallops, Salmon, Rotini with spaghetti sauce, Pumpkin anything
My favorite family cooking traditions
I've been making homemade cranberry sauce everything thanksgiving since I was a preteen. It really outshines that canned stuff. (Can you believe people slice it and serve it on a plate?!)
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate mint cake, mmm. I'm a big fan of "doctoring" cake mix, and this was a winner!
My cooking tragedies
Bacon! I can't seem to get this right. I unbecame vegetarian after 9 years, and the art of bacon eludes me!
