I am Corporate Communications major at Penn State and I love to cook. It has always been my first love and I hope to open up a bakery and hopefully a restuarant once I graduate, or sometime in the near future. I enjoy seeing others eat my food and I'm not afraid of some harsh criticism.
My favorite things to cook
Some of the things I like to cook are Creole Blackened Chicken Alfredo
Homemade Lasanga Noodles with Pepperoni and Meat Sauce, Chicken Tetrazinni, Pork Tederloin with Apricot Mustard Glaze, Curry Chicken, Peanut Soup, Southwestern Egg Rolls, Cabbage & Zuchinni Soup, Olive Salad, Habenero Chicken Fingers, Pork Chops with Jack Daniels Sauce, Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everybody always helped in the kitchen and the recipes that my grandmother used she gave to all of her children and grandchildren. Each of us makes it our own, but at the end of the day we all love each others cooking.
One of the things we always do the week before Christmas or Thanksgiving is prepare all of the sweets. We make all the pies and the cookies and store them in gift boxes until its time for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to bake breads. I was never good with yeast and it never worked for me. But once I mastered it I was able to make breads such as Challah, Raisin Bread, Whole Wheat, and my favorite Croissants.
My cooking tragedies
Fish. I tried to make some Blackened Jamaican Jerk Fish and it turned out too dry. That was my worst tragedy.
