I'm a 2nd year University student studying Biotechnology & Chartered Accountancy, and getting placed in a suite (bedrooms + kitchen + private bathroom) during 1st year was the best thing that ever happened to me! My roommates and I cooked and baked all year - floormates came to know us for it and would always pop by on weekends to see what was in the oven. Cookies, brownies and cakes never, ever lasted in our place!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - cookies, cakes, pies, squares, you name it! I have a couple favourite recipes I use all the time, but I'm also always up for trying something new, and it'll just depend on what's in my cupboard that day!
My cooking triumphs
I would say that most recently, my cooking triumph would have to be my "All American Apple Pie". I was a little apprehensive about the pie, but it turned out SO much better than I expected, and everybody loved it. I'm especially proud of making the pie crust by myself.
I also really enjoyed making "Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars" and those were a hit with my roommates too.
My cooking tragedies
Uncooked chicken in my pasta, forgetting about the curdling effects of adding citrus to cream soup in an attempt to make lemony cream sauce, trying to help a roommate replicate a recipe and it turning out tasting like baking soda - I've had my fair share of cooking failures! But I just try again!
