I've been cooking for most of my life. I started cooking for my family since I didn't want to do the dishes, and I made a deal with my mom. I'm a busy graduate student so I don't have the time to cook for myself as often as I would like, but I find to make simple and quick recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love French food, so pretty much anything French. I enjoy trying different pasta sauces, which can be quick and easy way to try something new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's lasagne is great and I love my grandmother's hummus.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a fruit tarte from scratch; it was for my best friend's birthday in college.
