I'm a graphic designer in the greater Cleveland area.
My favorite things to cook
Attempting new, unusual things. We all need to spice up our normal eating routine now and again, because eating burgers and chicken and spaghetti all the time gets boring! SPICE IT UP!
My cooking triumphs
When I was a poor college grad, I once spent two weeks using only what I had in my pantry to make really good meals. I had to get really creative with spices and sides... I made Italian wedding soup, homemade pizza, some kind of lime and cilantro rice/bean thing, and lots more.
My cooking tragedies
Snickerdoodles... I was probably 16 at the time, making snickerdoodles for the first time. Somewhere in the middle of making them the page got turned and I didn't notice... somehow omitted the sugar and they came out completely inedible. We put all sorts of stuff on them to try to sweeten them up - honey, powdered sugar, icing - but they were really disgusting.
