I am a college kid constantly looking for the gourmet experience. I love experimenting, even if it is just with ramen or home-made bread! Give me a challenge, I will conquer it (especially if I can eat it!!!)
My favorite things to cook
Give me a recipe, I will cook it. I especially love hearty meals that everybody has to sit down & enjoy. I love putting effort into cooking and seeing people enjoy the results.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Scottish. So give us simple, give us fried, give us meat. Also, Indian food.
It is not unheard of to have curry & chips (Scottish style, of course) for dinner in my house!
My cooking triumphs
Making chicken cordon bleu from SCRATCH, including the wine sauce, in a college student kitchen. :)
My cooking tragedies
Attempting to ease my parents into the idea of ground turkey when I was 14, I made Meatballs Florentine (turkey meatballs with spinach & feta). I substituted Parmesan for Feta, forgot the spinach in the microwave until after the meal, and burnt the meatballs. OOPS!
