I would have expected that after 9 1/2 weeks in Mexico, that I would have been dying to eat anything but Mexican food. However when I arrived at home I discovered that I craved salsa verde with all of my meals, when I had previously chastised my father for drowning all of his food in it and I… MORE

About Me
Hi Everyone! My name is Alina and I am a college student from Philadelphia, PA. I started baking in high school and for the past two years have been cooking quick and easy meals in my dorm as well. I love following tons of cooking websites, blogs, and photo-journals online for inspiration, in addition to my mom's old cookbooks and her tried and true recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make are roasted veggies. I like how easy they are to make, and how they can be added to almost anything or even eaten by themselves!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger I would always help my mom make fresh tortillas before dinner. I remember sitting on the counter next to the tortilla press, and rolling little spheres of dough between my palms. I felt so strong and grown up once I could actually hold down the press with enough force to make a proper tortilla.
My cooking triumphs
A few months ago I prepared a molten chocolate cake under the tutelage of a world-renowned chef. I was terrified of messing up, so I asked him a million questions and double-checked everything. However it turned out delicious, and he was so happy with the results that he gave me his secret recipe as a present afterwards!
My cooking tragedies
It took me a very long time to figure out how to scramble and fry eggs. Before that all of my attempts yielded either very under- or over-cooked eggs that were pretty gross.
