I'm a creative writing student at Washington University in St. Louis. I recently moved in with my amazing boyfriend, so I'm cooking all the time now. He claims I haven't had a miss yet, but, well, he is in love with me.
My favorite things to cook
I cook lots of pasta and vegetables. I also love making tasty treats like cake and cookies. The majority of what I make is Italian, and I'm getting better and more confident every day. I love just sauteing vegetables and herbs and putting it over pasta, and I love using my steamer to make perfect jasmine rice and veggies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and grandmother are both fantastic cooks. My grandmother makes the best chicken noodles. And my mom is practically legendary at my alma mater for her peanut butter kiss cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I feel triumphant every day when I finish dinner and we enjoy it :)
My cooking tragedies
Most of my worst cooking tragedies came in middle school. The apple turnovers...the Welsh rarebit...yikes.
