I like to cook. I have for a long time, but living alone for the last year has made it more important. For several months I have avoided fast food as much as I can, eating the food I make at home almost exclusively. This means food I make, not prepared junk you cook in the microwave. This is…
I have recently started attending the Culinary Arts Program as Edmonds Community College and am enjoying the challenges and lessons we are learning.
My favorite things to cook
I have recently been trying more curry and other, alternate foods. Chicken and pork made just about any way, ethnic foods, slow cooked, omelets and other breakfast dishes. Soups and stews are also some of my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandfather made the best fried chicken on the world. He breaded it with flour and spices and fried it in bacon fat. My mother made great soup and chicken an dumplings. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
My cooking triumphs
French onion soup and chicken adobo.
My cooking tragedies
Trying a bunch of spices in a meatloaf.
