About this Cook
I'm currently a full time student and also work full time, so it's a little hard to go out and buy groceries (sometimes it can get expensive) and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. So I like to cook quick and easy meals for me and my boyfriend.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with cheese! Mainly chicken quesadillas with bell peppers, jalepenos, and mushrooms. I squeeze a little lime juice on the chicken, sprinkle oregano and basil in the cheese before cooking and serve with a pineapple chipotle salsa. Delicious!
My cooking triumphs
One of the first recipes I tried about a year ago (when I first started cooking) was pad thai. For the sauce, I completely disregarded the recipe and made my own by (what I thought was) just "throwing things together". It came out fabulous and I found it that much more exciting because I didn't know what to expect. Since then, cooking has been a really fun hobby for me.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a recipe for a rocky road cheesecake in a cooking magazine. But it just tasted like peanuts in a lot of cream cheese...

Hot Portobello Mushroom Sandwich
This was yummy. I used focaccia bread and swiss cheese instead and added some sundried tomatoes. Thanks for this recipe!

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