A few years ago my boyfriend (now husband) and I moved into a new flat and the kitchen became my personal playground!! I absolutely love to get in there and try out new recipes! I'm lucky because we both enjoying eating, and it's twice as good if the food is tasty...so my mission continues.
My favorite things to cook
I used to love baking more than anything else, but since I can't eat sweets and only sweets I started to focus more on savory dishes. Now I love to prepare hearty one-dish meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately, we don't really have any. That being said, my grandmother was an excellent cook. I can say that I think of her often, and wish she were around to taste some of my dishes.
My cooking triumphs
A few summers ago, I learned to make several Hungarian dishes while hanging out at Lake Balaton. It was great to hear Hungarians say that the dish was delicious! Additionally, after one bite of my creme brulee (off of this site) my boyfriend's (husband) eyes became wide and he said "I didn't think it was possible to love you more..."
My cooking tragedies
I try to put these out of my head. Nevertheless, I own a cookbook and the chef/author makes it sound like if you can't make cheese puffs you can't call yourself a cook. So, I started working on them. The first batch tasted nice but they looked like pancakes. The second batch looked great and tasted like egg-wash, yuck!
