Ahhh Me
About this Cook
I'm a student at Michigan State University. I rarely get a chance to cook but when I do, I alwasy enjoy it and get great reviews, which makes me want to learn and cook more. :) I'm also probably the biggest Red Wings fan you'll ever meet. (All Wings fans say that). I love Hockey!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Tortilla Soup
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pineapple unside-down cake. Watching The Santa Claus every Christmas Eve. Detroit Red Wings.
My cooking triumphs
Nothing too exciting quite yet. Hopefully I'll be able to change that.

1st time making Empanadas! I was not sure about the dough, reminded me of play-dough and very granular until I mushed it all together, and had to let it sit out a while longer so it was soft enough to roll out the next day. I had to leave it in the oven for 25 min and also the cinnamon/sugar wouldn't stick to the fresh-out-the-oven empanadas so I ended up coating them with butter and dropping them in that way. For the filling I just bough some apple pie filling and processed it in my blender, worked great. Overall they're a big hit, might try a different dough recipe next time though.
