I am a married 23 year old in the IT field, specifically a technical support supervisor. I am still working on my bachelor's degree in computer science.
My favorite things to cook
I especially love making COOKIES! Chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter, raspberry, granola, pumpkin, dutch butter, sugar, you name it! I also cook vegetables, especially the likes of tubers, squash, and beans. The only meat I really deal with is chicken and lamb or fish like salmon or tuna.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
I baked 6 dozen chocolate chip and cocoa chocolate chip cookies and took them to work. After sending out a mass email, almost half of the company had come by and sampled them and everyone was raving about how good they were. This was how I got to know many of my co-workers and it was a wonderful ice-breaker. I ended up bringing them on 5 more occasions and I still get asked by people whose names I can't even remember when I'm bringing in my "famous cookies"!!
My cooking tragedies
I once steamed a big pot of squash and left it boiling, forgot about it, and then found it 3 hours later a charred mess, and chucked the lot of it along with the pot. Also, we won't even go into the time I tried to cook a lobster!
