Research Scientist Assistant by day, and covert cook by night. Cooking should be easy for me since I work in a lab, but it's not. I have a hard time with seasoning food too little, so it always comes out bland.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking: Mustard Rosemary Chicken (my favorite dish); fried porkchops, and corn pudding!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cornbread, greens, and smoking meats like pork & chicken.
My cooking triumphs
I made this Mustard Rosemary Cornish hen once and that has been my signature recipe since.
My cooking tragedies
This one time, I call myself trying to make ginger snaps. I noticed only the time it took to prepare and bake these cookies took, 40mins. Needless to say, I left them in the oven for 40mins and took a nap. When I woke up, they weren't burnt, but they were hard as rocks. I can still hear my baby sister, who was 6 at the time, ask "What are these? Rocks?"
