College student headed to grad school! Cooking good food on a budget with sometimes limited resources.
My favorite things to cook
Savoury dishes with lemon, fresh and light meals, authentic oriental (thai, vietnamese, chinese), light italian, variations on old favorites
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking tons and tons of goodies during the holidays with my Mom, making my Dad's favorite dishes, trying to recreate the dishes my Grandma was famous for.
My cooking triumphs
Managing a Christmas dinner on my own!, becoming famous for carrot cake and various cupcakes. A batch of falafel that my vegetarian friends still rave about 3 years later! Also famous among friends for mashed potatoes... stop eating the flakes out of the box, you guys!
My cooking tragedies
Pie crust. It seems so easy but it's so hard!
