Also, you might want to set it so non-members can comment on posts--you'll get more people just wandering in here from 3w4d, like I did!

Favorite things to cook/bake: Casseroles, quiche, and pasta with chickpeas for savoury things. Cakes for sweet things, though I haven't made any desserts in a good long time lately.
Favorite regional dishes: Lefse, blue moon ice cream, puppy chow, casseroles--hi, I'm midwestern. :D I also really like knishes, shwarma, pad thai, gnocchi, koshary, the list goes on. OH, AND CHEESE.
Special diet recipe favorites (ie vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, low fat): I often cook things that can be made vegetarian fairly easily, because they're generally foods that my family makes at home, and one of my sisters is vegetarian.
I'll add this to almost any dish: GARLIC. :D
Beginner, advanced, or somewhere in between: Maybe intermediate? I know how to cook, and I can improvise a bit, but I'm not making particularly difficult recipes.
Something I learned the hard way: When the recipe says to put in a full half-tablespoon of Old Bay, THAT IS PROBABLY WAY TOO MUCH OLD BAY.
Greatest cooking/baking triumph: I don't know about greatest, but I did make a really good beef stew a week or two ago! I was very proud of myself, because I've never cooked with beef other than ground beef before.
Something I haven't done yet but I'd like to try: I'd like to grill, but it's currently prohibitively expensive and I'm a little afraid of fire. ^^;; But it's on the list!
Other things I'd like to share: I haven't posted more than one recipe in recent times on my journal, but I'm planning to post them more often in the future.

Favorite things to cook/bake: Pad Thai, even if I don't make it anywhere close to authentic. I'm in love with making salsa. Bread and wontons are great those days I need a long project or to knead the hell out of something. I make a lot of pasta dishes and stir fry. Love backing anything that doesn't take shortening--I've been looking for a really good lemon cookie recipe without much luck.
Favorite regional dishes: Cheese curds, walleye cakes, Sweet Martha's cookies (om nom nom nom)
Special diet recipe favorites (ie vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, low fat): Most of what I make winds up being vegetarian just because touching raw meat really grosses me out. The videos about salmonella in Health class were a little too effective. Probably salsa.
I'll add this to almost any dish: Salt and cilantro. I have a possibly inappropriate love of cilantro.
Beginner, advanced, or somewhere in between: Probably intermediate? If I can find a video explaining how to do something on YouTube I can do it, but my knife skills are (dangerously) awful and I don't really try to cook new things that much since it's just me eating it.
Something I learned the hard way: Don't put something on the stove and then go on the computer. Also, things in the oven or on the stove are hot, yet I seem to learn this again every few months.
Greatest cooking/baking triumph: I made a roux and there were no tears! Also, my first loaf of bread was also the most delicious, satisfying thing I have ever eaten in my life.
Something I haven't done yet but I'd like to try: Homemade mac and cheese
Other things I'd like to share: I'm really into fandom (bandom, currently) and that's mostly what my journal is for. I get a lot of my recipes from Budget Bytes and don't really talk about cooking much on my journal, but I would love to talk cooking and motivating myself to step away from the TV dinner section! :)

Favorite things to cook/bake: Chicken dishes. Cookies.
Favorite regional dishes: Shrimp and Grits. (I assume you mean my region? There is very little that I won't eat!)
Special diet recipe favorites (ie vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, low fat): Baked dishes withOUT nuts. I'm allergic.
I'll add this to almost any dish: I think cilantro is the perfect food. Also, I love garlic.
Beginner, advanced, or somewhere in between: So very beginner, it's scary. I actually just wrote and posted this post for the 3W4D theme: cooking if you want to see just how beginner I am.
Something I learned the hard way: Dry pasta is extremely flammable. Extremely.
Greatest cooking/baking triumph: Chicken marsala. Texas Sheet Cake!
Something I haven't done yet but I'd like to try: Have a dinner party.
Other things I'd like to share: I'm always on the lookout for Weight Watchers friendly cooking, or at least low fat options.

havocthecat: strawberries, mint, and cream (food berries & cream)
From: [personal profile] havocthecat
Favorite things to cook/bake: Pasta! Many, many kinds of pasta. My favorite is red sauce and a really simple plain pasta tossed with olive oil, butter, and cheese. As to baking, I love baking cookies of any kind.
Favorite regional dishes: Italian. I can't help it; it's what I grew up cooking.
Special diet recipe favorites (ie vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, low fat): Gluten-free. I also cook corn-free and dairy-free at times. Too many friends and family members with food allergies.
I'll add this to almost any dish: Garlic.
Beginner, advanced, or somewhere in between: Advanced
Something I learned the hard way: Don't overheat the water when you're making bread. Dead yeast tells no tales, nor does it make bread rise. Ick.
Greatest cooking/baking triumph: Hollandaise sauce. And then fixing it after I broke the sauce.
Something I haven't done yet but I'd like to try: Pad thai, done right. It only looks easy. *wince*
Other things I'd like to share: Some day, I'm going to teach myself how to cook some Indian dishes.
