About this Cook
I am a college student working on an extremely tight budget and I have been working on adapting my favorite recipes to fit my life style.
My favorite things to cook
I love challenges, so a labor intensive recipe is something that I enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my family makes sugar cookies for Christmas, but every year the only shape we end up with are penguins, so we end up with an army!
My cooking triumphs
I am starting to work on food presentation and my big triumph came from these adorable little cheese balls that looked like monsters. They were so cute they were hard to eat!
My cooking tragedies
Ummm....too many

Curried Butternut Squash Soup
Amazing! I Don't even like squash but wow! I replaced the half/half with coconut milk and omitted the sour cream. I served it with LOTS of cilantro, roasted walnuts and a slice of homemade multi-grain bread...delicious!

Greek Pasta
GREAT RECIPE! Me and my roommate made it one night and it as awesome...easy prep quick to cook and went very nicely with some garlic bread...the only thing we changed was that we added a 1/4 c white wine when cooking the mushroom and it was fantastic, the mushroom soaked it all up and gave the dish a slightly sweet note which complimented the acidity of the tomatoes the bitterness of the olives and the saltiness of the feta. Next time we'll try adding other vegetables as suggested.

Oil Pie Crust
It was very hard to work. I have never had trouble with oil crusts before, but this one was vary challenging and did not want to stay together, so in the end I had to scrap it.
