I am a Registered Dietitian and a newly-wed who is attempting to cook for her husband!
A Registered Dietitian (or R.D.) is a food expert who has completed AT LEAST a Bachelor's Degree, an intensive internship experience lasting 6 months or more, and has passed a national exam. WE LOVE FOOD and strive to lead everyone to healthy diet choices that fit into EVERYONE's lifestyle. Cut your risk for disease! Go to MyPyramid.gov for a basic plan.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy stuff of course! And healthy stuff DOES NOT have to be gross or bland. I love composing salads.... making vegetables interesting and experimenting! And my hero is Alton Brown, which says a lot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We HAVE to have angel biscuits (simple yeast rolls) at every Thanksgiving. Also we have a 'Can O' cranberry sauce' but that does not involve any cooking... just leaving it in the shape of the can.
My cooking triumphs
Every time it doesn't "taste like >dirt<" is a triumph to me.
My cooking tragedies
A pumpkin pie I tried to make. I had just learned how in one of my classes, but something went wrong and this thing was soggy and gross.
