About this Cook
I'm a full time software developer who loves to cook and eat good food. Although I've been cooking for at least 10 years, it was only a couple of years ago that I really got serious with it. I have learned so much during that time and now cooking and baking is a major hobby of mine. There's nothing like the fantastic feeling you get when people love the food you've made for them.
My favorite things to cook
Pizza. I'm a pizza fanatic and I love making my own crusts.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list! Especially when trying so many recipes from AR. :)

Glazed Carrots
Simple, but sometimes simple is the best! I've made these several times now, and every once in a while I have a moisture problem with the carrots that prevents the glaze from getting thick. Just add some more brown sugar and cook it a little longer in the "glazing step" and it'll be fine. Top it with some chopped parsley so it's beautiful! If you don't have white pepper, black pepper is nearly the same (a little stronger)..white pepper is pretty much used to prevent black specks in your dish, which isn't a problem here with the darker glaze.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
This is my all time favorite soup! It's so "homey" with the perfect amount of kick to it. I use stock instead of broth for a richer flavor, and add almost a teaspoon of crushed fennel seed. (I never have ground, so I just crush them in a zip-lock bag with my meat tenderizer.) Depending on what stock or broth you use you'll need to add a lot of salt. So good when you're hungover. lol

Blueberry Cream Muffins
These muffins are super bland. Not only that, but the sour cream flavor comes through. Definitely not what you're expecting in a muffin.
