My favorite things to cook
I'm vegetarian, so I like finding spicy or flavorful vegetarian recipes to prove to my friends and family that meat is not an essential part of a meal. I pretty much like anything with a lot of ginger or cumin.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year I spend the days leading up to Xmas making *tons* of cookies. Decorating is the best part. :)
My cooking triumphs
After years of practice, I have finally perfected my pie crusts.
My cooking tragedies
I recently tried to make my own falafel from scratch. Everything seemed perfect...until I placed the balls into the hot oil. At first they just sat there, and then they slowly disintegrated until all that was left of my hard work was several inches of hot oil and floating bits of chickpea mixture. Apparently I hadn't let the oil get hot enough, so instead of cooking the falafel, I just dissolved it.
