About this Cook
Originally from the US, I started using allrecipes regularly when I started travelling and living in different countries and couldn't carry my cook books and often couldn't find the ingredients that I was used to. But I think that my cooking has improved dramatically because of it. It's taught me how to analyse and understand a dish, substitute and improvise with ease (And laugh at flopped dishes!)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking pies. There's just something really homey about homemade fruit pies....
My cooking triumphs
A full thanksgiving dinner for my international friends made all by myself in one very fickle oven that was barely big enough for the turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Bean bread! I was in Ecuador at the time and the lady at the market assured me over and over that it was corn meal but it really was some sort of ground bean meal. Not really a tragedy, but highly amusing. (And not very tasty)

Golden Sweet Cornbread
Didn't change a thing and the recipe worked perfectly. Staple for our house corn bread now!

Vegan Chocolate Cake
Absolutely a perfect chocolate cake recipe - no changes necessary! I generally make this into cupcakes (I take all my baking into work, cupcakes are easier!). This is my standby chocolate cake and it's great since I always have all these ingredients on hand. Thanks for sharing!

Fried Cornmeal Mush
I've never had fried mush before so I don't have a clue how it is supposed to cook or taste, but my turned out like the picture so I think I did alright! I'm very happy with it, it's on my regular list now! I had it with veggie sausages and gravy for dinner and am looking forward to having it with breakfast tomorrow. So Mush novice says 5 stars!
