I am a senior in High School. I love to cook, and try new recipes all the time. I am a vegetarian and I love to make my own recipes. I will be going to culinary school next year.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything! I will try anything once. I love cooking pastas and potatoes especially.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom passed her mashed potato method down to me, and it is makes the best, creamiest, fluffiest mashed potatoes ever! Also my grandma taught me how to make her enchilada recipe which she swore she would take to her grave!
My cooking triumphs
Since I still want to eat all my old favorites, I have successfully made several variations on old classics like Sesame-Chicken style tofu, and vegan gravy for mashed potatoes and chick'n patties.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few things blow up, and countless burns on my body. My favorite is the oven rack-shaped scar on my right forearm from a careless cookie baking accident in the sizth grade.
