Just a college student who gets sick of the typical fare (Pizza, Ramen Noodles, etc) so I try to cook for myself as much as I can. :-)
My favorite things to cook
Chicken dinner dishes, and desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised Jewish, and I love certain dishes my mom grandma would prepare-- my mom makes the best Challah in the world (ironically enough, since she converted to Judaism from Christianity) and my grandma makes the best homemade chicken matzo ball soup. Yummmmm!
My cooking triumphs
I've never had a dessert fail-- it's the one thing that pleases everybody.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many-- I always stay safe and only use recipes from this site that have at least a 4 star rating!
