About this Cook
I'm a college student in the Midwest United States studying music performance on cello. I also play on the drumline at my university and I am trying to pick up a double major with history. I was given the assignment of cooking for the family this summer and I'm doing my best to come up with creative recipes that even a picky eater like me will find edible.
My favorite things to cook
Simple penuche (a bunch of melted sugar and butter the way I make it). Otherwise I'd rather be eating something than cooking it. haha.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm left out of all of the holiday cooking loops except for pumpkin pie at Halloween and a cinnamon apple cider at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Milano -- a friend and I spent an hour in the kitchen slopping things, frying others, running to the grocery store, and heaping up messy pans but eventually we emerged with God's Gift to the dinner table.
My cooking tragedies
Baking brownies without the mysterious "oleo" ingredient. Turns out it's rather important. Also, don't try to make instant pudding with water when the recipe calls for milk...

Slow-Cooked White Chili
I was lazy and I just threw the turkey I was using and the broth in with everything at the beginning to let it cook, and it turned out great!

Mom's Zucchini Bread
Easy and delicious! I made it with a yellow squash of some type as well as zucchini, so I came out with cool yellow / green colors inside!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole
I made this the other night for dinner, but had no 9x9" pan, so I tried a circular pan similar to the pictured one. Unfortunately, the cornbread was still gooshy when it was time for dinner, but the parts that we ate from the edge were awesome! I will definitely be making this again (in a larger, flat pan). Thanks!
