About this Cook
I am a student at the University of Florida; studying Event Management consumes most of my day time. At night I am a completely different person. I am not learning from someone else... I am experimenting and teaching myself how to become a better cook. I love to cook for my male friends, they are always eager to eat whatever I make no matter how it turns out. Awful meals are not really an issue but sometimes I get a little carried away with my spices-especially garlic and onion. I enjoy thoughtful critique although most are hesitant to give it because I do put so much effort into my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and I love to cook anything for others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is phenomenal on the grill and I have tried to convince him to join this website. (I think he feels it is a little emasculating. Oh well, his loss.) My mom make terrific spaghetti and the worlds best fruit cake. In fact- it is the only fruit cake I will eat and not pretend to enjoy. My grandmother never glances at a recipe and turns the simplest ingredients into mouthwatering southern traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I am now in charge of holiday feasts provided I have not had to much wine the night before. I have also started getting requests for my own original takes on past recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Garlic bread... I always burn it. I blame this on my tragic excuse for an oven. Ah, the college life.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
This was wonderful. I used an 11 inch spring form and made an extra cup of the crust mix. By using the 11 inch and the same amount of filling for some reason it fell in the middle. My dad sticking his finger in it could have had something to do with that. I made extra raspberries and used those to fill in the dip in the middle. People were eewing and awwing about my little pond of raspberry sauce. They thought I did it on purpose! I have never had so many compliments on any one dish! Make this and be sure that you can tweak the recipe to what's in your fridge and it will come out delicious every time!
