Hi! I'm 30, work for a local bank, and am a new vegetarian. I am pretty much a self taught cook. My dad was the one to make dinners at home when I was growing up and he only did what he had to do so we didn't starve. Now that I'm older, I've found a great interest in cooking. I actually look forward to coming home from work to cook dinner. It makes me feel less stressed...
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I like to try new things all the time. New recipes, techniques, ingredients, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We go to the grower's market every Saturday morning to buy fresh organic veggies and fruit, cheese, bread, and eggs. I love it!
My cooking triumphs
Making an Apple Pie and having the crust be successful! What a proud moment :o)
My cooking tragedies
One time, I had my mom and sister over for dinner. We made a stirfry and potstickers. I tried to steam the potstickers and they came out undercooked and rubbery! They looked terrible and were still white. They didn't taste much better. My sister said they looked like "pucker holes"...nasty!
