I'm a single, 20-something, professional female living in the DC 'burbs. I love to cook, but tend to freeze the leftovers because I can never eat all of a dish in a reasonable amount of time and I don't like to scale down recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I like recipes that are quick and easy, but don't taste quick and easy. Also, most everything I cook needs to freeze well. I LOVE to cook for other people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We ALWAYS make pink peppermint pies for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking the Thanksgiving turkey last year for my family. It was my first time and it came out perfect!
My cooking tragedies
I was hungry one night, so I decided to make up a casserole out of things I had in my house. I randomly mixed up a whole bunch of things (chicken, canned green beans, rice, stuffing mix, cream of mushroom soup, and a whole bunch of other stuff) to make a casserole. The result was a flavorless mess.
