My name is Jerry, and I currently reside in Beaverton, Oregon. Im 19 and I live by myself, as has been the case for several years. I enjoy cooking and do it as often as possible. As far as life outside of the kitchen: I play billiards, I love going on walks, playing the guitar, and singing. Most of my friends say im a pretty laid back guy. If you wanna chat, my AIM screen name is Xzibited4life.
My favorite things to cook
Meat and pasta dishes are my favorites. I also enjoy desserts, and consider myself to be a total cheesecake snob. I try to cook a little bit of everything just for the experience.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies during the holidays, and my grandmothers snickerdoodles (which she bakes for me every time I see her). Try as I might, I cant duplicate this recipie...
My cooking triumphs
Filet Mignon, spiced oatmeal raisin cookies, from scratch pasta sauces, grilled cheese sandwiches (top secret recipe), and a delicious variation of an artichoke dip I found on this website.
My cooking tragedies
The first batch of cookies I ever made by myself...i will always remember them. Im not sure exactly what I did wrong, but they were TERRIBLE. The last cheesecake I made was also a disaster. I believe it was 50% bad recipe, 50% operator error. :-)
