Well, starting my first cooking blog with telling a bit about myself and my philosophy of food. I like to cook various types of foods and feel proficient enough to handle and create new recipes, as long as I have a way to cook/prepare them. I feel cooking
truly is both science and art in it's…
I love to cook (just not clean, lol). I enjoy a good recipe and get the occasional urge to do some serious cooking. I'm what one may call artsy. I do all sorts of arts and crafts and work as a cosmetologist as my regular job.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking, whether it be cakes, cookies or bread. Most of the time I tend to make sweets and spicy dishes. I also enjoy making a good stew or soup. Lately I've been expanding to cooking some Asian cuisines, especially since I've been trying to eat healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well for me is when my father makes his Chili for the 4th of July. I love it when he used beef chunks instead of ground, as the way he makes it, it comes out so tender. There's another more vegan dish my mother used to make for me growing up, but considering she sort of just made it up, we just call it "hot stuff" cause it was very spicy.
My cooking triumphs
Hmm, anything that turns out good or others love it, I'd consider that a triumph. Otherwise, getting it done right the first time is also great, too :)
My cooking tragedies
I'd say when I was in my pre-teens... I was experimenting with ways to cook eggs in the microwave. Well, syrup didn't go well with the usual additives to egg I found.
Another one I remembered, I was cooking fish for dinner...it turned out really good until I decided to get fancy and add some red wine I gotten before..(was homemade sweet wine and let's put it this way, it was better with the fish than on it). I was sad I ran out of that wine ;-;
