I've travelled through Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, India, and of course Europe, so my food tastes can be quite diverse. My mom is from Ireland, so traditional Irish recipes always catch my eye.
I live by myself, so I cook things that are easily frozen to eat later as leftovers, or to bring to work for lunch.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with chocolate in it!! I'm a huge chocoholic. I love the Penne Russo a la Vodka recipe from this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Gran's oatcakes with peanut butter.
Any of the food at Christmas (well, except for Christmas pudding).
My mom's Maccaroni and Cheese - which reminds me, I realy should get that recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I once made French bread from scratch. I'm told that even the French don't do it as it's time consuming. That might explain why I only did it the once despite the great outcome. ;-)
My cooking tragedies
Well, making the baking powder biscuits from this site with baking soda probably qualifies as a tragedy - they were quite disgusting ;)
