I enjoy cooking as a hobby and as a way to learn something new. As a pharmacist, work keeps me so busy, so technical, that I need something that is creative to open my mind... cooking gives me that outlet. I enjoy food, and I enjoy good friends... put the two together, and you have a great evening ahead of you!
My favorite things to cook
Anything creamy, rich, buttery... you get the picture! Other than that, I'm open to alot of things. I noticed that when it comes to baking, however, I prefer short-cut recipes. Nowadays, I've tried to cut out a lot of my creamy vices, and looking for delicious, healthier alternatives.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making eggrolls- homestyle!
My cooking triumphs
Any recipe that turns out a winner is a triumph in my book!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make caramel once. What a disaster! I set off all the smoke alarms, and charred my poor little saucepan beyond repair. Since then, I have caramel-phobia.
