I love food and have a passion for cooking. I like trying new and different recipes and making it my own.
My favorite things to cook
Pastas, poultry, seafood, italian, mexican, asian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with my parents always trying to get my siblings and I involved in helping them cook. We would get to do the easy tasks like peeling veggies or grating cheese or measuring and pouring in the liquids. When I got older I appreciated it more and I'm grateful that they showed me the importance of cooking because it has helped me build a passion for cooking. I also love how my parents make "non-traditional" Thanksgiving dinners: prime rib instead of turkey. I never missed the turkey one bit.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever my boyfriend is happy with my cooking and tells me how delicious it is and how he loves that I can cook - it puts a smile on my face.
My cooking tragedies
There have been some dishes that just turned out horribly. Most notably a recipe I found online some place for some pork chops. I decided to make it because I needed a quick and easy recipe for pork chops and I happened to have the ingredients at home at that time. It turned out tasteless and didn't look pleasing either. Needless to say, it has been the worst thing I have ever cooked. I barely ate a piece of it before tossing the entire thing out. And of course I need to work on my baking.
