I am a college student at the University of Arkansas. I started cooking when I was about 12. My mom would make me cook one meal a week for the whole family. I fell in love with cooking and entertaining. My friends love for me to cook for them and let them taste test my new recipes. My dream is to graduate with a busniess degree and open my own resturant within the first 5 years after graduation.
My favorite things to cook
I have a huge sweettoothe, so I bake all the time. I also love to make Italian dishes with fresh herbs and cheeses. I don't eat fish but I enjoy cooking it for others to enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother gave my mom her special cookbook when she moved off to college. She also bought me one when I moved off to college. It can only be found in Hattisburg, MS. I love the holidays when the 3 of us can get together and cook our favorite recipes and share our new ones with each other.
My cooking triumphs
I guess I really knew that people liked my food about 2 weeks ago when I got asked by the Senior VP in Tyson Club Foods if I would cater his Christmas party. I was ecstatic when he asked me.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of any off the top of my head.
