About this Cook
I recently within the last couple years started cooking. It was never one of my favorite pastimes and I was always kind of in the way as a kid so usually stayed out of the kitchen. I decided it was time to start cooking when I moved in with a relative who’s cooking (in my opinion) has left little to be desired. It was either pick up a spatula or starve. So now years later my motto is quick and easy is king. I like things that are simple, easy and good. I usually don't have the time to be in the kitchen all day so I usually leaned toward 30min or less type meals but even still that beats a bland meal any day.
My cooking tragedies
I make this chocolate cake w/ chocolate icing for my brother and it usually comes out a success. So successful that I thought to myself "hey why not make them into cup cakes?" I thought that it should be fairly easy despite the fact that I had never made a cup cake in my life. Needless to say it was a bust the cupcakes came out really hard and dry (maybe because I cooked them to long who knows) either way they were horrible. And the worst part about it was that I had made them for my mother’s birthday. The only good thing that came out of it was that we didn't have a party and it was just us so the rest of my family was spared having to eat those rock hard things. Oh well maybe next time.

I had to make this for a classroom of 30 children. I'm not sure if they were just okay because of the quantity or what but they were alot more work than I was willing to put in. By the end I felt like I was swimming in dough. My saving grace is that kids love sugar.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini
Really good got 4 out of 5 because there was some editing done that help bring out the flavor one being we used stock instead of broth. Made 2 versions one with pepper one without some people can't handle the intensity of the pepper but for me it came out good both ways

Peach Coffee Cake II
This was good and I would make it again. the only reason it was rated 4 instead of 5 has nothing to do with the recipe. Instead of vanilla extract my helper put in almond extract and I don't like almonds. However next time I make this I will add a little brown sugar and cinnamon to the cake and not just for the topping.
