About this Cook
I've been cooking for my family, by myself, since I was in 6th grade. I've started to really try other types of cooking since 11th grade in highschool. I've learned to cook Phillipino and Indian/Pakistani food in my college years as my friends families has treated me like their own daughter.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies and cakes. Also love to just cook generally everything. Food makes many people happy and I like to make people happy. Overall, my "crack cookies" as my friends call them, are my favorite thing to bake because everyone always loves them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making dinner. I usually make dinner at home for my family. Also our weekend BBQs with family and our huge Thanksgiving lunch in which I make everything else (stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc...), but the turkey for a family gathering of 15+. We usually get a yummie smoked turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Making my chocolate chip cookies for my relatives without measuring cups or spoons. They came out AWESOME! Now for some reason I cannot replicate it =(
My cooking tragedies
Taking 6 hours to cook a dinner. Never pleasant!

Honey Cornbread
A simple but very delicious recipe! I do believe that instead of using ¼ cup of sugar, I used ½ the first time. And right before measuring your honey, you should measure the oil that way the honey just slides right out! The second time I made it, it was not as sweet as the first time. That’s how I concluded that I probably added more sugar than called for. Also halfway through cooking, I found that my oven was quite hot at 400 and almost burned the tops, so I lowered the oven to 350 the last 10 minutes of cooking. All ovens are different though, so adjust accordingly.

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip
Just great! Everyone loved it at the Super Bowl Party I was hosting! Instead of the mixed tomatoes with green chili peppers, I just used a can of diced tomatoes, drained along with some pickled jalapenos, chopped. I also had some left over rotisserie chicken which I chopped up. I used a whole can of black beans and dumped them in with everything else like others have done. I did not put in the sour cream as my little crock pot was already over flowing with the ingredients! But it tasted just fine without it and possibly better after topping some chips with the nacho dip, fresh salsa, slices of pickled jalapenos, sour cream and green onions! YUM!

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops
I didnt give it a 4 because it could be tweaked as follows: Rub lemon pepper (fresh is better!) on the chops. Sear pork chops with oil until golden brown on both sides. Place in buttered cassarole dish. top with pad of butter and worcestershire. top dish with a piece of foil. Bake in preheated oven until to desired doneness. The dish will turn out moist and delicious and not that icky white looking piece of meat in the picture.
