I, Nobody'sGirl, do solemnly swear to buy capers. I sealed my fate. And I have suffered the consequences. I will give you a little background. I live in Canada. In a very tiny little community. It’s actually classified as a ‘village’. Less than a thousand people reside in its boundaries.… MORE

About this Cook
I'm 25 years old, and I've just started to really learn my way around a kitchen. There's been a few disasters, but it's all a learning experience. Life is a journey, not a destination!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake! Cookies, cakes, anything sweet and tasty. I'm on the prowl for the perfect chocolate icing recipe. It eludes me as yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every sunday in the summer months my family has a potluck barbeque. We all live fairly close together, so we throw together something tasty to eat and head over to my uncle's house to grill. It's been like that since I was little. In mid-may, around the 15th, we have a lobster boil, and each year we have different holiday dinners at a certain person's house.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally recreated my grandma's stuffing recipe! It's very few ingrediants, but I just could never get it right. You know how grandmas are; 'a pinch' of this, 'a handful' of that. Next up; her soft molasses cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Oh god. I don't know if they're -tragedies- so much as cooking snafus. I remember making mac and cheese without cooking the roux (didn't have half a clue was a roux was anyway). It was disgusting, cheese-flavored flour-paste. Oh! Here's a good one. Once upon a time, I put on hot dogs to boil, then I went into the computer room to chill out. So I'm cruisin' the internet and the SMOKE ALARM goes off. I rush out the kitchen! The water is evaporated and the hot dogs are BURNT to the bottom of the pan. Try telling someone that knows that you've burnt BOILED HOT DOGS that the cake you're serving them is safe to eat. :x

Chef John's Scones
Best scones I will ever have the pleasure of eating. Had to use whipping cream, as that's all I had. Added zest of one orange and dried cranberries. Also sprinkled a bit of sugar on top of the egg wash before baking and it gave them a lovely crust. I deleted all other saved scone recipes. This is 'the one'.

Pig Burger
The Pig Burger: Because you will feel like a pig after you eat it. :o Seriously, this turned into a MAMMOTH burger for me. But talk about delicious. Omg. I wasn't too sure about the herb-y mayo and the guacamole, but do it. I made Nana's Fabulous Faccacia Bread to go with this, and it was for lack of a better word - fabulous!

Chicago-Style Hot Dog
Holy mother of hotdog! These were excellent. A bit different, and a lot more kick than a standard dog, which is quite alright by me. I did use pepperoncini peppers, as I haven't seen 'sports' peppers before. I made Mike's Signature Pretzel Bread into hotdog buns for these, and was not disappointed. Great pairing. Thanks. :)
