I graduated with a degree in Dietetic/Nutrition and Food Science and am getting my Master's in Public Health. One of my favorite things to do is make the recipes I love more healthy by trying new substitutions or adding more vegetables. It doesn't always work out great, but it's a learning experience.
My favorite things to cook
I don't cook it too frequently, but my favorite thing to cook overall is Asian food. I love it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas my grandmother makes sticky buns. They are like cinnamon rolls only with a maple-sugar topping. Not only are they delicious but they are fun to make with my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Everything that is not burnt or dry is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
A few years ago I learn that if you heat olive oil for too long it will burst into flames and make your house smell for a long time. :(
