About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was about 3 years old, my mom bought me a little cookbook for kids that came with colored measuring spoons. And so my passion was born. I love to find better ways of doing things and I've found quite a few on this site. Using floss to cut through cinnamon rolls or sticky buns, using waxed paper or plastic wrap for rolling out cookies, buscuits, or pie crust, absolute genius! There's always something new to be found!
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 8 years old I tried to make chocolate chip cookies, and when they came out of the over and cooled they had the exact consistancy of toffey. They were stretchy and chewy and sticky. I still don't know what I did wrong.

Tomato Basil Pasta
This is very tasty, but I would reduce the olive oil to 3 table spoons at most and saute the garlic with the onion to bring out their flavor. Also, drain the liquid of the tomatoes before adding them to the rest of the ingredients. The recipe as written comes out very liquidy.

Alfredo Sauce
I made this recipie as described with one minor change. I simmer the garlic in the butter for a few minutes before adding the cream. This brings out the oil-soluble flavors and aroma of the garlic, infusing them into the butter. Aside from that I followed this recipe to the letter and it comes out perfectly!
