I'm an ISU senior in Family and Consumer Science. I believe cooking allows you to explore your imagination and is also a staple for a happy, healthy life. I live with my boyfriend and our 2 dogs, who do nothing to help in the garden(or kitchen, but that's how I like it).
My favorite things to cook
I love quick and easy cooking, with a healthy, vegetarian twist. My man won't let me touch the grill so I just do the prep work and let him take the credit. Also, living with a carnivor has made me a very creative cook. I'm always trying to stasify us both with new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma always used up my grandpa's produce with awesome pickles, jams, pies, and anything else she could come up with. Now that shes gone we continue the traditions with grandpas produce at my parents house at the end of every season.
My cooking triumphs
I'm still working on perfecting my grandma's pie crust.. it's just never as good
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make rice to save my life.
