About this Cook
I have a love/hate relationship with cooking and food. I love spicy, flavorful foods with a lot of veggies and a bit of lean meat. I despise pork and rarely cook with beef. I hate the focus our culture puts on food, when it is just fuel for our bodies. I don't have much time to cook and live alone, so I cook once a week and package up individual portions to reheat each day--so I have to cook foods I can enjoy for an entire week.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake loaf cakes and muffins, but unfortunately I currently have no oven :(
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up very poor, and my mom was a genius at stretching limited resources to make healthy, tasty meals--a skill I am proud to inherit!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs will be posted here, of course!
My cooking tragedies
I really don't have too many--except for the time when the rice in my casserole stayed crunchy because I didn't add enough water...

Tastes just like the real thing, but not as thick. Also, you have to use dark brown sugar if you want it to look like store bought amaretto.
