About this Cook
I cook a lot now that I'm in college and on my own. But I do a lot of desserts, so apparently I'm still eating a sort of college-like diet. Oh well! Haha.
My favorite things to cook
Brownies, rolls, teacake, potato things, broccoli casserole, muffins, etc. Mainly desserts, though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We kind of have a tradition of being against using mixes for baked goods out of a box. They're usually pointless. We always make our desserts and such from scratch -- so much better that way ^.^;
My cooking triumphs
I'm a very successful quesadilla and tostada cook, hahahaha.
My cooking tragedies
I cooked a spinach lasagna once that was REALLY GOOD. Everybody liked it. So I saved the recipe and cooked it again later, exactly the same way (I thought), and it was the worst thing I'd ever tasted. =/.

Cream Cheese Cookies III
Really yummy! =). To give it more of a tropical/summer-like flavor, I omitted the egg and used a banana, and also used Dole's pina colada juice instead of lemon juice. I also did not use nuts--but only because I didn't have any! I made the cookie-part twice (using one mixture for the bottom and another for the topping). For the bottom one, I added a couple tablespoons cornmeal to try to get a little bit of a crunch, but I didn't do that for the top. It was delicious and I plan to make it again really soon!

Avocado Dessert
MmmMmm! Avocados were on sale so we bought a whole bunch, and I needed things to make with them. This was very light, super easy, and REALLY good! I made some changes, using soy milk instead of regular milk, and halving the sugar and the vanilla. It was not overpowering at all, but rather just sweet enough! This will probably become one of my regular snacks =).

Lisa's Macaroni and Cheese
I used penne instead of elbow macaroni. It was really dry and kind of crunchy after not too long. Not good as leftovers. I also tried to adjust the measurements to work, but I guess I failed a little bit =P. I think I might try it again with elbow, though, and then re-review/rate.

Muffins are great for breakfast, with coffee, or just as a snack on the go.
