About this Cook
The two things that got me into cooking were the cookie recipes I found here and the summer a French exchange student stayed at my house. I don't know which came first, but they both eventually led to me going to culinary school. That summer I was taking a few classes, but otherwise I had nothing to do. My sister was away, so I spent most days looking around Allrecipes for something great to cook for dinner to impress the boy because he was French. the cookies were a different matter. I always liked making or baking things for birthdays, and when I found the recipe for ginger cookies and got so many compliments for them, I couldn't stop making them. I'd make cookies for every occasion I could, and in the mean time I started digging through this site finding whatever else looked fantastic. Somewhere along the line I got incredibly interested in molecular gastronomy and fine dining. I wanted to go into physics but my cousin suggested culinary school, and I took it to heart and here's whe

Vegetable Salsa Soup
Easiest soup I've ever made, and it's soo good. I love that it's basically broth, salsa, and whatever veggies you have on hand or want to use up, because you can always keep salsa and broth in your pantry. It's incredibly healthy too. Awesome recipe!

Oma's Fabulous Matzo Ball Soup
You can make these kosher by using shmaltz (rendered chicken fat) instead of butter I like slightly dense but flavorful matzah balls and I thought these were phenomenal. TIP-FORMING: keep your hands oiled when rolling the balls, it keeps the dough from sticking and helps them shape well TIP-SEASON TO TASTE: before adding the eggs, mix salt into the matzah, and then TASTE it. keep adding salt if it's bland. Then, add more than you think you need and then add the eggs. Remember that the egg yolks will really cut down the flavor though so just make sure you add enough salt. Then and only then will they taste their best.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
Absolutely loved this. I added just a pinch of brown sugar for flavor, the fruit was sweet enough. To speed it up, I used an egg slicer to cut everything except the apples. For the Tortillas, I sprayed and sugared each one. Then, I stacked a few at a time and cut them with scissors, I've found it's the fastest way.
