I love to eat. I love to eat out, I love to eat in, I love to eat snacks, and I love to cook. I just moved into my first apartment in Boston, living with five other girls (it’s a REALLY big apartment) and I attempting to put my cooking skills to the test in my college girl kitchen.
I have a somewhat problematic obsession with the Food Network and cooking shows. I love Iron Chef America; Chopped; Throwdown; Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives; Cupcake Wars and pretty much anything that involves making my mouth water. I also love foodnetwork.com for recipe ideas and cooking tips.
My favorite food is pasta, but I also love pizza, hoagies, watermelon, ice cream, grilled shrimp, bacon, chicken noodle soup, and too many other foods to count. My favorite meal of the day is dessert. I never cook a recipe the same twice, and I’m not super fond of measuring cups/spoons. I like to put garlic in everything. I’m not afraid of taking shortcuts, as long as the food comes out tasting good in the end. I love to experiment, but when I find a recipe I like, I become sort of attached to it.
Besides cooking, I also love to go out to eat. I love to try new things, but I’m also fond of a few old favorites. I travel a lot, and every new city means a new food adventure. I grew up in South Jersey, so I know a lot about cheesesteaks and water ice, but I go to school in Boston, so I can tell you a thing or two about chowdah as well.
