About this Cook
I'm a law student by day and a foodie by night! I love cooking and reading food writing and I'm a real feeder - friends on diets know better than to come around!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, the richer and softer the better. Also big, grand salads and interesting exotic dishes like curries. I'll try to make anything.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding
Amazing! This dish was the star of my five-course dinner party last night. 1 cup is the perfect amount of butterscotch chips. I followed the recipe as-is, except I used half-and-half instead of milk (calories don't count at parties), and I added cinnamon as per reviewers suggestions. This is a great dinner party dish because you can put it in the oven right before guests arrive and by the time everyone is ready for dessert the whole kitchen smells heavenly. I served it with warm Creme Anglaise II from this web site and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Perfect!

Creme Anglaise II
Wonderful, especially when served warm! Very simple flavor that enhances the dish. I would add a flavored liquor, maybe an almond or white chocolate liquor, next time, and also maybe cinnamon.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
This was very good, but so rich. The flavor wasn't very complex, it just tasted like fat and sugar to me. I got compliments on it at a party, but personally this wasn't my favorite. I think that maybe it needs something else, like blueberries in the cheesecake part, maybe. Also it is not elegant, and is actually a rather "ugly" dessert, which is a big problem for me.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
