About this Cook
I just finished grad school and found a job in Boise. I now have money and time to cook and have found that I love it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I get really excited to make birthday cakes, holiday cookies, thanksgiving pies... I love the presentation aspect of deserts. I also enjoy cooking (and eating!) ethnic foods such as: Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Italian, and African. Veggies are some of my favorite foods, and I am trying to master the art of cooking meat after being a vegetarian for a number of years.
My cooking tragedies
I used to think that I was an average to great cook. When I started dating a chef though those thoughts went out the window. My cooking skills are nothing in comparison, and although I am not up to par, he has taught me so much.

Carrot Cake III
I am not a huge fan of carrot cake. I made this for my bf who is always begging for anything not chocolate. I used the suggestions from gneebeanie and it turned out amazing. Initially, I had just a tiny piece, but had to back for more. This recipe made me a carrot cake lover, thank you!

Carne Guisada II
I don't have a crock-pot and just used the stove turned to low. Mine was done after about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. There is no need to cook this on the stove for 8 to 12 hours. Served buritto still with rice, beans, sour cream, cheese, and tomatoes. It was delicious and so easy. Will make again.

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies
These cookies taste like a softer version of the Girl Scout thin mints. Absolutely amazing. I used 1/2 an Andes mint on some and a full on others. I prefer the 1/2 mint, but the boyfriend prefers the full.
