I'm a young cook, 24 years old but I have been in the kitchen since I was about 2 years old. And took on cooking family dinners every weeknight since I was 11 years old.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make hearty and healthy main dish salads. I also love simple but not so common casseroles that I've either tweaked or completely came up with on my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everybody knows when it comes to family get togethers, I'm bringing the potato salad, just like Granny made.
My cooking triumphs
I feel triumphant in that cooking comes easily to me. I don't have to be a slave to a recipe book for every meal. I can take any recipe and work with it to make it my own, and I always come out on top!
My cooking tragedies
To be honest I haven't had many of those except for the usual accidentally burning something, but even that hasn't happened anytime lately. (Now that I've said that I will probably burn tonight's dinner!)
