I'm still learning to cook - and I like experimenting alot. I don't always have the ingredients recipes call for, so I improvise alot as well. The best results seem to come from improvising!
My favorite things to cook
cookies and cakes, stir frys, dutch pancakes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was well known for her excellent pies; we usually try our best to make Thanksgiving Dinner, and Christmas dinner as non-store-bought as possible. My Mum usually makes Sunday dinner as well, with cutlets and really superb mashed potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
I perfected my cinnamon chocolate cookies ^_^
My cooking tragedies
...I burnt rice when I was trying to steam it.
