I'm a 29 year old, make-up artist, from NY, now living in South Florida, and I love to cook! When I was growing up I always wanted to be a chef, but through high school I wasn't much into cooking anymore and realized my dream was to be a make up artist so that's my career of choice. I've recently started getting into cooking again and, although I don't want to do it professionally, I still love to do it and follow recipes well. I'm also getting pretty good at making things up, which is always fun!
My favorite things to cook
Anything chicken! Lol, I love it. I also like to bake and I love cooking very easy things that don't take long, but taste great!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma is the ultimate cook and most of the recipes she has were made up by her. Back in 2005 she was up visiting for the holidays and she taught me a few of the dishes that she used to make when I was younger and taught me how to make it, it was really special!
My cooking triumphs
Since I've joined this site, back in 2005, I've had many cooking triumphs. I've also become the main cook in my household since everybody loves my cooking so much.
My cooking tragedies
Oh too many to count, but you learn from your mistakes!
