I'm a professional cook wannabe.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything that doesn't involve pork. My actual preference is vegetarian but I have learned to like...and cook...some things in which meat is involved.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German foods from my mom and grandmother. And my mom made the most awesome chocolate chip cookies in the world.
My cooking triumphs
Things that I baked.
Middle Eastern cuisine.
My cooking tragedies
My early efforts with meat, especially chicken, needed major work.
