About this Cook
Hey. What can I say, I've never really been the domestic type but cooking just comes natural to me. My mother was born in China and her blood that runs through my veins has affected more then just my gene pool. I've grown up with chopsticks and rice, every single day and this 13 year old prefers squid over a chocolate chip cookie. Don't get me wrong I'm still human and I do like cookies but just in my own way.
My favorite things to cook
Mainly just baking, because a can of soup to me is a well balanced meal.
My cooking triumphs
Has yet to come.
My cooking tragedies
Oh believe me I have a grave yard full of them.

Cherry Clafouti
I took the other reviewers recommadations to heart as I made this dish for a work party my parents are having tonight, even though I will not be able to sample this due to my allergies it smells just delightful! I only used 1 pound of cherries(and the trick to pitting them is stem them then take a bobby pin in the stem whole and then pop that cherry), I also only used 4 tablespoons of heavy cream and it took exatly 45 minutes, to the dot in the oven. A real looker.

Whoopie Pies
Wow I haven't done one of these in forever.. Ok cake good, check, filling scarily fattening but still good, check. I didn't have one small package of pudding mix (as suggested as the top reviewer which you SHOULD defiantely follow) but one huge one (the product of one penny saving mother and a coupon sale for freakishly large pudding packages) so I put half in the cake part and 1/4 in the filling since the filling just tasted bland and like plain shortening itself. Product is pretty ok uhh added actual chocolate chips in the filling maybe about 1/4 a cup, also a very important fact they don't specifise the baking time but for me it was 22 minutes but it may very for you. I first heard about whoopie pies form the world news and how the Amish would pack these in their husband's lunch pails and every time they saw one they would say Whoo-PIE, and all I can do is agree with them

Easy Olive Oil, Tomato, and Basil Pasta
Ughh!! This is like the opposite of a sunny tummy. I attempted this for dinner, I couldn't even eat the 6th spoonful before I deserted the meal. Definite improvements: More oil-less pasta, triple the tomatoes and add some sort of seasoning (add the watery part of the tomatoe, it helps) OK, here's I know I'm being harsh but you would understand when you saw I dumped a can of Progresso's Italian meatball on the finished product, Yuck!
