I am a relative newbie to serious cooking. Spent some time in cooking classes in the past, but only since I found this site have I really had any passion for it. I decided I love this site because I can find recipes for stuff I actually want to eat. My past classes always ended up being incredibly complicated dishes that took forever and I didn't care about eating them by the time they were finished. Now, my cooking serves a purpose- to make dinner a pleasure!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes. I'm working on cooking every dish I ever loved in a restaurant. My recent fav: chicken marsala. Yum!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey dinner! I just love the whole thing. Especially the gravy.
My cooking triumphs
Recently made roast chicken that turned out perfect. Not dry at all. That was a first for me.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a chocolate chip cookie recipe from this site which ended up a complete mess. The cookies oozed all over the pan and were inedible.
