I live with my boyfriend and four cats, and I love to cook for friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Indian, Tex-Mex, soups, and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm the first competent cook in my family, so there are no family secrets or significant traditions to be shared.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever cooked for friends, I tried to make Orange Chicken. I didn't have corn starch and didn't know why it was so important to the dish, so I omitted it. It turned out more like vaguely Asian orange soup with chicken floating in it.
