snobby, lol.
i have to make things PERFECTLY, and they have to look nice, and i spend wayyyyyyyy too much on expensive, exotic, and imported ingredients. i know my food's good, and i know it looks awesome when i take the time to make it look beautiful.
so snobby it is. food snob i am!

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

In one word - HAPHAZARD.

I seldom have a failure, but the planning beforehand leaves a lot to be desired. I seldom know what I'll be cooking until I get to the peckish stage! I hate cooking for one - no kudos!

or if you want it to sound nicer, frugal. I'm always trying to find ways to lower the cost of a dish or use up what I have by subsituting.

Homestyle. My mom was such a wonderful cook, and I cook a lot of things the way she did. Whenever something I make turns out just like hers did, I get so excited! lol

Bold. I love to create dishes that jump out at you, both visually and in flavor. I love to try different flavor combinations and to give people a chance to experience tastes that they've never had before.

My preschoolers don't care what I come up with as it seems they will only eat Banquet Chicken Nuggets.

Just kidding. I think I would go with


Im not much for making strong flavors or extremely ritch food, but I usually build my spicing and sauces from the ground up using a lot of little enhancers, for example most of my curry meat dishes will contain a little butter (or ghee) which brings out a strange sweetness in indian curry powder.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

Inventive. I will often use a fairly basic recipe and add add'l ingredients for greater flavor and style.

I love trying new things that noone around me has tried before. I'm the one in the family that everyone is always saying "Wonder what she's bringing this time" ;o) 9 times of 10, everyone loves whatever it is.
