I am a student at Camosun College in Victoria, B.C. my major is Biology, but my weekend hobby/passion is cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a real health nut. Many of my recipes fall under low fat, low calorie or high fibre. I like to develop my own recipes, many of which I will be posting sooner or later, some being quite simple and fast, others being rather time consuming and tricky.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A lot of my cooking skills originated from my mom. She started my whole passion for cooking. I accidentally have the same extra-lean hamburger recipe as my mom....I told her what I put in mine, and as it turned out, it was all the same stuff she used too:)
We have a diverse culture background, so a lot of our traditions with food just involve making foods native to our origin countries (i.e. goulash, perogy)
My cooking triumphs
My very first souffle ever did not fall:)
My cooking tragedies
None since I've been smart enough to cook properly.....but when I was 6 or 7 my sister and I had this genius idea for chocolate filled pancakes.....that was a flop.
