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!
