I've been making up recipes most of my life (which drove my parents crazy... it took about a decade before anything started turning out).
My favorite things to cook
I love to spend all day cooking great meals.... but being in grad school gets in the way. These days, I do a lot of grilling and crock-pot meals.
My cooking triumphs
Preparing a lovely brunch (2 kinds quiche, sticky buns, pesto tortellini, fruit salad, croissants).... for my own wedding (aagh!). Luckily, it was only for 20!
My cooking tragedies
Having to dump three crock-pots in a row of unsalvagable baked beans. Who knew you could even wreck baked beans, much less three attempts!
