I'm a college student-athlete, so most of my cooking is limited to what is quick, cheap, and healthy. Around the holidays, though, I love baking and trying new recipes with my family (in a much nicer kitchen).
My favorite things to cook
Again, whatever is quick/easy/cheap/healthy. I make a lot of stews, mostly vegetarian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are always trying to perfect our Christmas cookie assortment.
My cooking triumphs
I get satisfaction from making something that people enjoy, especially if it is nutritious and fast.
My cooking tragedies
First cooking experience as a child -- macaroni and cheese from a box, but I forgot to read the part about draining the pasta before adding the cheese powder. Never again!!
