I'm a medical student who doesn't have much time to cook... To be honest, I cook one time per week a whole big batch of 'something' that lasts for the whole week. Sounds boring? Maybe, but I try and make stuff I really enjoy eating and wouldn't mind eating day after day.
Also, I'm a tomato addict... I really am. I eat several of them a day, raw with nothing on it. YUM!
My favorite things to cook
Salads, Eggs, Cucumber soup, pasta, lentil soup
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's not really a tradition, but we all enjoy the following:
-Mom's Cucumber soup
-Koogle (both sweet and salty)
... which means that each one of us had to master all of these recipes at a certain point so we could feed the hungry troops (aka our family).
As we are not originally from the States we didn't celebrate Thanksgiving until about 5 years ago... it wasn't hard to adopt this holiday as it is all about food :o)
My cooking triumphs
Let's see... at first it was not burning stuff... Now it is more on the line of finding a great recipe and successfuly making it
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to count. Nevertheless, they were all fun!
