I'm 26 years old and I love to cook and try new foods. I find being in the kitchen to be relaxing and soothing especially after a long day at work. I love to try new recipes and my husband has no problem trying them all!
My favorite things to cook
I really don't have a favorite. I like to try new recipes all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Me and my sisters used to get together every Sunday and cook and play games. It is a great way to spend time together and know what is going on in our lives. One of my sisters has recently moved out of town so I definately miss that.
My cooking triumphs
1. Cooking the family gumbo recipe. I was terrified to try this on my own, but it came out exactly like my mother's! 2. Family dinner rolls. This was another recipe I was very nervous about attempting. You will either get the rolls to rise or you won't, lol. I decided to bit the bullet and try it out. Mission completed! 3. Easter Dinner 2011. I made the entire feast on my own and it turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
I got a recipe off the food network channel that sounded really good. I followed all the instructions which called for alot of beer and oil. When I finished thats all it tasted like. What was bad was I just started dating this guy and I made it for him!! I immediately threw that recipe away. Seven years later I am now married to that same guy.
