My name is Alissa. I just recently moved into an apartment with my boyfriend, and I am trying to learn how to cook! I used to cook before this, but only for myself..now I have someone to impress!
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and easy. I love chicken wing dip and anything cassarole!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother cooks amazing Italian food, I hope to carry on her tradition!
My cooking triumphs
The best meal I have made so far has probably been chicken stuffed with cheese cooked in wine. (My mothers recipe)
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list! The worst was when I tried to roast a chicken. I didn't know for sure how long to keep it in, so I bought one with a timer--but the timer never popped up! I ended up cooking it for about 4 and 1/2 hours just because I was nervous it wouldn't be cooked through. Needless to say, it was pretty chewy.
