I've been cooking since I was little with my mom. I even got my first cook book when I was about 5...still have it, still use it! Within the past few years, I've gotten a lot more into cooking and absolutely love it. I now have a million and a half recipes, dozens of cookbooks, and a lot of great cooking sites bookmarked online so I'm never without something to cook.
My favorite things to cook
When I was younger, baking was my favorite thing to do. Now that I'm older, I enjoy making actual meals. I love Thai, Italian, any pasta dish, and...well, just about everything and anything! (Except seafood...)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my mom around the holidays. I hope to be good as she is someday!
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean Beef Stroganoff!! =)
And, I have a pretty good "Peanut Butter Cup" Cake that I make on birthdays.
My cooking tragedies
There was this one pie I tried to make once...it never quite thickened and instead turned into a soupy mess.
