About this Cook
Graduated with a degree in Hotel,Restaurant and Institution Management, Majored in Culinary arts. Been in the food industry for quite some time. Good cooking skills and good taste for food runs in the family I suppose. ...Yum! :)
My favorite things to cook
No particular cuisine or dish. I love to experiment with different ingredients and cooking methods.. But if I were asked to pick, I'd say my forte and my favorite would be anything of Asian Fusion.

Extra Simple BBQ Banana
Try slicing the banana in half lengthwise then grill it flesh side down. Peel after, top on vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with granola. YUM!

Marshmallow Icing
I gave this a 4 because I made a couple of changes. Tip1: Seeing as there are some users who found this recipe too sweet, make sure you taste your marshmallows before you use them so you can adjust the sweetness of your icing. In my case, I used really sweet ones so i lessened the sugar to 2/3 cup and omitted the corn syrup. Tip2: follow the procedure as written and make sure you cook the egg whites, sugar and water over the double boiler till it peaks. Beat it continuously as instructed. If you add in the marshmallows too soon, it'll be as flat as hot marshmallow fluff from a jar... Tip3:you can add another cup of marshmallows if you wish... I used 30pcs of the big ones. I know it doesn't measure the same but i'm pretty sure it's more than a cup. In my experience, more marshmallows = better viscosity especially if you want to pipe it on. So overall, this recipe was exactly what i was looking for but the sugar level needed a little adjusting to my taste... mmm fluffy marshmallow goodness... cheers!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
It would've been the best brownies ever if only it weren't THAT sweet. Everybody whom I shared it with found it too very sweet (more emphasis on the sweet) despite the fact that I followed another user's suggestion to use 2 cups white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I'll try making this one again but with just 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar next time..I also followed another user's suggestion to remove the brownie from the oven before the toothpick comes out clean and leave it to cool. It came out fabulous! The corners were not burned and the texture of the brownie was chewy and fudgey like how a brownie should be. Overall, this brownie recipe is great, just needs a little adjusting with the sugar. Cheers!
