My name is Samantha and I am from Southern California. All my life I have loved to cook and bake. I have recently decided that I want to go to culinary school and become a chef. I love the satisfaction I give when I make an awesome meal for my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love mexican food and recently my boyfriends family has been showing me how to make the authentic mexican food like, mole, chili rellanos, devil shrimp( camarones a la diabla), etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I would have to say my favorite family cooking traditions are on Thanksgiving when 3 people in my family make 3 different kinds of turkey and we all get to taste how wonderful each on turned out (and sometimes didn't turn out)
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say the best triumph was after trying serveral attempts to make mole without having a accurate recipe I finally hit it on the nail.
My cooking tragedies
I always love a good challenege trying to cooking anything, so when my boyfriend challenged me to make turkey mole and I failed 2 times it was a weekly challenge until I suceeded. I finally did after his mom made it with me!
