I used to be a horror in the kitchen, but in my early twenties began to find that I did enjoy creating fun meals with different types of foods. Now I am looking into cullinary school, but the greatest part about discovering my passion for food is that I am known in my group of friends as "the ONE that does all of the cooking". I love getting the gang together for large family style meals followed by drinks.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. My favorite thing to do is take a simple dish & add my own flare to it - everyone refers to it as "Ang-style cooking". I seem to be a sucker on AR & like to try and "rescue" unrated recipes by giving them a go.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Italian - especially my mom's lasagna because she learned how to make it from her full blood Italian off the boat grandmother! Also, we always have a huge turkey dinner for Thanksgiving & nothing beats that. :)
My cooking triumphs
I made up my own way to make turkey burgers and when ALL 4 BOYS that I was feeding (and these are meat and potato guys) liked them better than their traditional beef burgers I knew I did something right! Anytime that I try something new & different (like making my own bagels, ect) it always feels like a conquered something.
My cooking tragedies
Recently, it was trying to make homemade pasta for my mother's bday. It was horrific...we will leave it at that... :(
