I'm a 20-something New Yorker who loves trying a new recipe every time I cook, which is usually a couple times a week. Even though New York is filled with great restaurants and I do eat out a lot, I really enjoy cooking as a relaxing activity and learning experience.
My favorite things to cook
Organic produce, free range eggs and meats. I believe that organic and local farm raised foods have better flavor and fresher consistency. I love simple one-pot recipes for week nights and then trying more elaborate time consuming recipes on weekends. Some of my favorite things to make: moroccan tangines, creamy chowders, thai curries, risottos, lamb dishes, chili, cookies, brownies.
My cooking tragedies
All those dishes that I burned because I wasn't paying attention. I promise that I will never again try to cook and play videogames at the same time. I'm also an incredibly accident-prone cook. You name the body part, I've sliced/burned/grated/seared it. But I'm proud to say my accidents have never directly harmed the food and that physical pain will never keep me out of the kitchen!
