I started cooking for the first time about 3 years ago! I still need to stick to recipes but my tastes have expanded and I always love to try cooking new things that are easy and delicious. I love travelling and always look for authentic cuisine from all the countries I visit.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Curry, pesto chicken pasta salad, chicken caesar wraps, chicken fajitas, peanut chicken and all things chicken lol!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Gammie always cooked Hungarian Goulash (our own family recipe I'm sure! There isn't anything 'hungarian' about it...) It consists of layered potatos, ground beef, onions, tomato soup over everything and bread crumbs on the top. So basic and SO delicious! I'm going to pass that one down for many generations!
My cooking triumphs
My first 'real' dinner. It took a lot of timing to get everything right... actually its the first recipe I got from here. Portobello Mushroom and artichoke chicken... I made it for my mom for the first time after she got home from a very long day at work. She said it was the best chicken she's ever tasted. :)
My cooking tragedies
So so many. Possibly the first time I baked cookies... I tried to get both of the pans of cookies in at the same time... meanwhile the bottom pan was too close to the bottom of the oven and the top pan too close to the top. Each batch was incredibly burnt on one side and hardly cooked on the other. Learning experience!
