i love to cook and try out new recipes. particularly ones from other cultures. i have a weakness for spicy food and seafood. i have a strong interest in vegetarian dishes and tend to cook mostly vegetarian because it's easily affordable. but if there's a good sale on you can bet i'll be at the seafood counter.
My favorite things to cook
i have a love affair going on with eggplants and artichokes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family doesn't have any real cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
baking a 3 layer, german chocolate cake from scratch is definately one of my high points. and it came out great too! I've also done hand made coconut creme filled chocolates. those were such a bother to do, but i accomplished it.
My cooking tragedies
let's not linger there.
