About this Cook
I'm a video game programmer during the day and cook by night.
My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything. Other people prefer when I bake cakes and cookies, but I enjoy cooking/baking anything I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition we have is my brother and I on wild cooking tangents where we, for no reason, end up in the kitchen on some weekend afternoon cooking and baking for 5+ hours. What fun!
My cooking triumphs
I'd have to say the first time I made cookies from scratch with no recipe or guide. They ended up being chili flavoured, and they were actually delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I tend to not pay attention when I'm reheating leftovers, so I quite often forget they're on the stove. That's resulted in the house being filled with smoke quite a few times!

Cinnamon-Apple Chex(R) Mix
Really good and easy to make, but make sure you let it cool down before you add the yogurt covered raisins or you'll end up with raisins and yogurt bits all throughout.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham
This was a great recipe. I increased all of the ingredients but the ham because I like powerful food, and I also baked it at a lower temperature for a lot longer. It turned out great and even my I-only-eat-chicken-nuggets cousin ate a huge serving.

Pizza Dough I
This would have turned out better if I were better at making dough, but it was very good anyway.
