I am a recently married So Cal native. I have a bachelor's in photojournalism from CSU Fullerton. I currently am working as a teacher's substitute.
My favorite things to cook
Spraghetti, and beefy things in my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
grandma made salmon patties- I can't find my copy, but there was canned salmon, egg, and saltine craackers.
My other grandma wrote a meatloaf recipe telling how many ketchup packets (from fast food) it would take in her meatloaf recipe- definitely an unusual source for condiments, but thrifty:)
My cooking triumphs
I am good at roasting chickens- I made a turkey dinner for my parents and in laws when my husband and I were dating
My cooking tragedies
First time I used my slow cooker, I burnt the food (didn't put liquid in.)
I am horrible at eggs, except I can make scrambled.
