About this Cook
I'm a technical editor who works for an Army contractor; I come from a family of exceptionally talented gourmands and I'm trying to bring my skill level up to par with theirs.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook all kinds of things, but I'm best with a wok; I want to try and cook all kinds of different cuisines, especially vegetarian. I also like baking cakes, but I'm not really big on eating sweets though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love it when my family cooks during the holidays or caters for parties; their gift with food and entertainment really shines then.
My cooking triumphs
I can cook a *fantastic* roast chicken.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making guacamole was so bad I don't know if I'll ever be able to eat it again.

The Best Mashed Potatoes
I used this recipe with some tweaks and it turned out amazing. I replaced the cream cheese with a pint of heavy whipping cream, used russet potatoes (what I had on hand) and boiled the potatoes in chicken broth. Otherwise did not change anything, other than to top it off with some cheddar and bacon in a casserole dish and finish it in the oven. Amazing flavor, and after reading other reviews about the dish's consistency, I'm glad I made the sub for whipping cream. Will definitely make again.
