In my late twenties, excited to have more time to cook and experiment now that I have a summer of transition between Chiropractic school and the beginning of my new career! Especially interested in baking and cake decorating, though I'm coming along with cooking (meat dishes especially).
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry with a variety of marinades, soups, anything Mexican (though I need a class!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My brother and I would take turns cracking eggs, and would fight over the egg beaters (with raw cookie dough or brownie batter). My mother is like the Tazmanian Devil in the kitchen, as she has 4 or 5 things going at once. I prefer to take my time with 1 or 2!
My cooking triumphs
I just baked a Texas Sheet Cake for my husband's birthday in March, 2008. The decorations were elementary at best, but it took me 3 hours and tasted fabulous!
My cooking tragedies
I tried making granola and the first time I burned it to smithereens. I even had added the dried fruit before baking (oops!), so my "golden raisins" were little carbon crunchies.
