I've been living in a small apartment behind Chinatown with my boyfriend for the past year, so I've been trying to master Asian cooking. Also were having our first child so I'm trying to bake and eat healthier.
My favorite things to cook
Family recipe honey garlic chicken, One pot chocolate cake, cookies, tortes, stuffing
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mothers turkey stuffing.. oh boy. She was taught how to make it by my Grandpa and now she has taught me! Everyone loves it. Also our family has some Ukrainian in it, and we make cabbage rolls for every occasion but.. they are special family cabbage rolls using what we call "lazy holopchi" and bacon on the top!
My cooking triumphs
I am the master of chicken anything! For some reason, chicken is just my niche! I've learned to cook and bake without recipes, but of course I still like to use a recipe once in a while!
My cooking tragedies
I've gone through so many cakes trying to layer them and having them fall apart and crumbling! Also baking cookies with shortening for too long and they come out smelling and tasting like popcorn!
