Graduate student, living on my own with my boyfriend for about a year now, and trying to live up to my dad's amazing home cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and try out creative new dessert recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pizza! My dad has been making the best home-made pizza since I was in grammar school, and he is famous for it among my family and close friends. He is also infamous for waking us all up early on a Sunday morning with a huge breakfast, usually a bacon and egg omelet on a hard roll or pancakes.
My cooking triumphs
I make some pretty mean oven-fried chicken.
My cooking tragedies
I'm always setting the fire alarm off in our apartment, but it's rarely because of burning food!
Also, I once made a chicken and dumplings dish, which looked absolutely delicious in the picture, but didn't stir it enough while it was cooking covered and the whole thing burned at the bottom and stuck to the pan :(
