About this Cook
My favorite part of cooking is sharing what I make with family and friends!
My favorite things to cook
I love making italian food of any kind, and am working on perfecting my lasagna recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making enchilada sauce from scratch with my step-dad, latkes with my grandparents, and drinking mimosas on new years mornings with my mom.
My cooking triumphs
Creating original recipes! It's always so fulfilling when I make up something and it gets rave reviews (although my boyfriend is a little biased...!)
My cooking tragedies
COOKIES! I don't know if it's that I'm too impatient when I'm measuring ingredients or that I bake them too long or not long enough, but they are just never good!
Recipe Reviews 9 reviews
Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili
VERY bland. I had to spice it up and also add lots of garnish (sour cream, cheese, salsa, etc).

Wonderful Yogurt Cake
I followed another reviewer's suggestions and used all white sugar rather than brown. I baked muffins rather than a cake, and added a bit of raspberry jelly in between two scoops of the batter to create a fruit layer in the muffin. Unfortunately, the fruit sank to the bottom, but provided a sweet suprise in every bite! I would make it again, but am not in a hurry.
