About this Cook
I am a recent college graduate and world traveler, currently residing at home and working at a new job. I cook for my family and want to challenge myself with new and different recipes - when time permits.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and make any type of dessert. My favorite foods are cereal and ice cream (haven't attempted to make it yet).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has a long family tree of italians, so I naturally put a ton of garlic in my meals.
My cooking triumphs
I am often in charge of desserts during the holidays and haven't failed yet! Have been requested recipes for cookies and pies multiple times.
My cooking tragedies
I tried this cake recipe from a "Chocolate Recipes" book and it called for only water. I was very confused as to why there was no oil and eggs, must have been a typo. Needless to say, the cake tasted horrible....
