I love to cook! Anything and everything, I'm always in the kitchen... that is, when I'm not studying, writing papers and tests, but I'm beginning my last degree (for a little while at least...)
My favorite things to cook
I love to make what i call Shabby-Chic Gourmet.. the most fabulous food I can with the simplest ingredients and the lowest cost... you'd be surprised what you could do! I've really shifted the focus of my cooking towards making those delicious high fat, high cal, decadent meals that we all love (and a few of those fatty, greasy, or fatty, sugary messes we all hold so dear to our clogged arteries!) for a fraction of the fat and calories with no sacrifice in taste! Get creative and healthy, its easier than you think!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is big on cooking everything and anything, if it's strange, new, organic, you name it we want to try it!
My cooking triumphs
Recently I would say my biggest triumph was a very delicious, fat free, low-cal calamari, sauce and all! It was yummy, perfectly seasoned, so crispy and the calamari was so tender! Who says you have to deep-fry calamari???
My cooking tragedies
Most certainly my HORRIBLY failed attempt at making a beautiful whipped cream frosting... oh the melty sad looking cake that resulted in... More recently my disastrous attempt at a gorgeous Thai seafood stirfry I had some months ago was simply horrific... it was bitter, some seafood was overcooked, some veggies under... word to the wise, don't try to recreate restaurant quality food in seven minutes!
