I'm a 25 year old recent transplant to Chicago. I'm cooking more mostly to save money. I like to try new things, but I'm mostly cooking for one, and it's hard to find recipes that can easily be scaled down to one or two servings!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake - cookies, cakes, tarts, muffins.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma's lemon meringue pie. It's so good! We make it extra tart!
My cooking triumphs
I made a batch of challah bread recently, and my roommate and neighbors absolutely devoured it. I guess it went over well!
