About this Cook
I'm 22, living on my own again. After striking out on my own at 21 to move in with an ex-boyfriend (who at that point lived off frozen pizza) I'm always looking for new things to try and cook. Now living with a new roommate in a different town I am still constantly learning new recipes and techniques and realizing I can cook. Not as well as others, but more than just frozen pizza, mac and cheese and spaghetti-o's!
My favorite things to cook
Dunchfest. Dinner disguised as brunch. We did it for a couple weekends at my old apartment. Pancakes or french toast, eggs (scrambled), bacon or sausage, and home fries. A fun group cooking event that was hard to screw up and easy to recover from if you did.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have a lot of cooking traditions. We had minimal group cooking time. It's almost as through sitting in the kitchen just chatting with Gram and Mom is supposed to teach me to cook through osmosis.
My cooking triumphs
Just trying. I'm always so impressed with myself for giving myself something new. It all seems to come easily with a solid set of directions.

Baby Carrots with Dill Butter
I wanted to like this recipe but there was too much lemon and it felt like it was missing something. I'd make them again if I needed a quick side dish and had all of this on hand but I'd rather find something different to eat.

Haddock Marinara
This was delicious, it's a little too much sauce but that's easy to deal with when plating. I put it over linguine and it was great. I softened the onion and garlic in butter then boiled my pasta in any remnants from that pan. I'll definitely cook this again!

Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich
I had this on whole wheat bagel bread today for lunch and it was spectacular! Some notes: - Cut the basil leaves, not chop, but whole leaves tend to pull right out with each bite. - I drizzled the oil and vinegar on the bread, layered on the tomato, basil and mozzarella then drizzled some more and then toasted lightly. - Next time I will lightly toast the bread first too! It's a perfect lunch for work, I have everything pre-sliced in baggies in the fridge ready to be made in the toaster oven at work tomorrow!
