I'm fresh out of highschool (finally) and attending university in the fall. I'm the youngest out of three children and still living with the parents. I love cooking -- it's one of the only things I'm ACTUALLY good at doing! Other interests include makeup artistry and traveling.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that's quick and easy. I don't really like cooking things that are time consuming. Most of the recipes I choose to make from this site usually take me under two years max. I usually cook Asian cuisine or easy vegetarian meals on a daily basis (I hate dealing with meat). I also have a love for baking -- anything from cookies to cheesecake to pumpkin chai cupcakes! Usually I cook for people; just giving people the satisfaction makes me feel like I've done something right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family cooking traditions? Always use onion and garlic... always!!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I once made minestrone soup (Jamie's Minestrone from this website) with all these great harvest vegetables. I cooked it in our biggest pot since I doubled the recipe and surprisingly, it was all gone within a day -- by only three people!
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy, there's too many to name! I occasionally have a tendency of overcooking things, especially meat. And I also have a problem with cooking dessert bars -- they NEVER EVER come out right!
