I am a third year nursing student who is slowly learning my way around the kitchen; what started out as necessity is turning into a fun hobby. I would consider myself a beginner cook who likes to try anything.
My favorite things to cook
I love homemade, healthy dishes. I love using my slowcooker, for chilis, soups, and tenderizing meats. I have yet to cook long enough to have favourite things to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am from a huge Italian family and so we make fresh pasta for all special occasions, I have helped with making homemade ravioli, spaghetti, homemade bolognese sauce, ravioli stuffing, etc. Nothing quite like it! The secret ingredient is nutmeg in the ravioli stuffing mixture, mmmmmm!
My cooking triumphs
Everything that turns out palatable is a triumph so far!
My cooking tragedies
Baking... several cookie disasters
