About this Cook
I work full time at a university but my schedule revolves around food. I am an avid eater who checks food blogs and allrecipes.com with my daily bowl of oats n' fixings.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making unique hors d'oeuvres for family/friend gatherings and having them guessing the recipe. My biggest hit to date has been with baking though - cookies, breads and muffins! I love using fresh local produce from the Farmer's Market to cook and bake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was a pot stirrer for a long while before my mom got me to work on the chopping block. My mom being the main cook for the family, I like helping her with little tasks here and there and keeping an eye on things. It gives her a peace of mind.
My cooking triumphs
I once made shrimp stirfry over rice for my dad. It was the summer after first year of university when I lived away from home. He was very impressed! When I went home for Christmas in 2008, I made a pumpkin roll for my family with cream cheese icing. My brother devoured it and asked me to make some extra icing before I leave so he could eat it on its own.
My cooking tragedies
My friends and I were feeling adventurous one day and decided to make peach cobbler. I was in charge of dry ingredients and I thought baking soda and baking powder were the same things...the peach cobbler came out a bit too soggy and I had to fess up that I didn't know the difference between the two! Another time, I microwaved an egg because I didn't have time to hard boil it. I forgot about it and my mom opened the microwave and not knowing that it had been microwaved, she poked it with a fork and it splattered all over her face. Now that was too funny to be a tragedy!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
The texture is always inconsistent for me, which is really unusual...taste fine but requires a bit of tweaking every time with the duration spent in the oven.
