My favorite things to cook
I like using fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs. I also love making waffles from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was lucky to have both my dad and my mom as cooking role models. My dad was an expert with pancakes and waffles, while my mom managed dinners. I grew up eating healthy and homemade, which has greatly influenced my cooking and eating style today.
My cooking triumphs
I've recently started creating my own recipes, and when I finally perfected my tuna salad, it was a huge breakthrough for me. I am also very proud of being able to stock my kitchen with thrift-store cooking supplies, although I am still without a good set of knives.
My cooking tragedies
Besides regular burns and cuts in the kitchen (I'm clumsy), my worst cooking memory involves my first time making cookies alone when I was in elementary school. I didn't know what the abbreviation "tsp." meant, so I added a tablespoon of baking soda, ruining the cookies.
