About this Cook
I love to eat, but those carbs go right to my thighs!! I'm a software programmer by day, but a home economist by night. I love showering my colleagues with baked goodies from my kitchen. I slave over the oven for the compliments. ;)
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate cupcakes, banana bread, omelettes, vegetarian chili, quinoa, chick pea curry, Spicy Chinese Eggplant, pizza
My cooking triumphs
Italian Meringue Buttercream! At first, I thought I screwed it up. It was sopping mess after beating it for 5 minutes! Reluctant to throw it out, I stuck it in the fridge. I revived it the next day and beat the mixture for another 5-10 minutes. The result was beautiful.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a frozened cheesecake once. I must have pressed the chocolate cookie-crumbed crust too hard because it was way to hard to cut. The frozened cheesecake itself was also too hard.

Apple Banana Cupcakes
Light, fluffly, moist cupcakes. This is the recipe I've been looking for. It's almost a foolproof recipe. I modified it with 1 cup AP flour, 1 cup cake flour, 2/3 canola oil instead of shortening, 1/4 cup soured soy milk (with 1/2 tsp vinegar) instead of buttermilk, 1 mashed banana instead of 1 cup, and 3 apples instead of 2. I think they needed more flavour, like more cinnamon and swapping out some white sugar for brown sugar.

Best Ever Banana Bread
This was really awesome banana bread! I brought it in to share with my office and everyone loved it. I did make some alterations: 1. Swapped vegetable oil for coconut oil; 2. Used vanilla almond milk + vinegar instead of buttermilk; 3. Added cinnamon & nutmeg; 4. Swapped pecans for walnuts + cacao nibs; 5. Instead of 1.5 cups sugar, 1 cup white sugar + 1/2 cup brown sugar.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
This soup was so TASTY! My only complaint was the chewy bits of lemongrass. The next time I make this I would cut the lemongrass in 2-inch pieces and then remove them before serving. I didn't follow the recipe to a tee as I wanted to use up 3/4 cup of leftover coconut milk. I cut all the other ingredients in half and the soup was still super TASTY!
