Growing up my family was never into cooking food and I guess you could say I've had my share of terrible food. When I started dating my boyfriend a few years ago he and his family introduced me to what real food taste like. Most meals aren't as good anymore. As a culinary student he has been teaching me a few tricks here and there. My mom has also been getting on my case about learning how to cook so I can live on my own. The thing that I need to work on when cooking is being patient and following the steps correctly. I've messed up a lot of meals that way.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try different ethnic foods. They seem to have so much taste that I love. I guess also so I can find out about ingredients I've never heard of.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polish food and Grandma's cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I made some really good ginger chicken that wasn't dry.
