About this Cook
I am a 22 year old student. I love to cook and learn new recipes and new things about cooking. I like to read cookbooks and browse Allrecipes.com a lot and try new things in the kitchen whenever I can.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I also like to make healthy, quick, hearty meals for my boyfriend and myself. I am very interested in Indian cooking because it is my favorite food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I get my love of baking from my dad who used to come up to me late at night and say, "Let's Bake." To this day I still do most of my baking in the late hours.
My cooking triumphs
I created my own carrot cake recipe by merging a few recipes together and it turned out amazing! By far the best cake I have ever made or tasted.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a pumpkin roll this Thanksgiving, it didn't turn out so good.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Great Recipe, but I used it as a template and changed it a bit to make it healthier. I used Applesauce instead of melted butter and Agave Nectar instead of sugar. I used 1/2 cup agave to replace the 3/4 cup sugar. I added some cinnamon and a little nutmeg for extra flavor. They turned out wonderful and made 12 big beautiful muffins.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
Great recipe! My dad and used to always makes these kind of cakey pumpkin cookies with orange glaze as a kid and I have been searching for a similar recipe. This one is even better! As I said, I add an ORANGE GLAZE on top that complements the pumpkin perfectly! They are great without but with the glaze they are amazing! Everyone who has ever tasted them has fell in love!
