I have lived here in the South for pretty much my whole life, and it's a big part of who I am. (Go USC Gamecocks!!!!) I absolutely love to try new things, there's pretty much nothing I won't try at least once. I have a twin sister who likes to cook. I love to cook, and just bring something new to the table each time. I love learning to cook traditional recipes from my family. Besides being a foodie, I'm also a big alternative, emo, and indie rock fan and I pretty much love music in general, from listening to writing it to playing it on the piano.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, anything goes. There's been few things that I've really hated doing when it comes to cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad has a couple killer recipes that he made up and have become quite famous among friends. He always makes them for special occasions. Among them are his white seafood lasagna, Chinese rice, and stuffed shells. But everything my dad makes is delicious, and he's like an inspiration to me.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate cake, pasta dishes, pan-seared rainbow trout.
My cooking tragedies
A chicken pot pie. I tried to make the pastry myself, and I used wheat flour. Enough said. It was just wrong.
