About this Cook
I'm currently 29. I hope to one day make the world a better place through 18th century French poetry. And I'm all about diplomacy, peace, and equal rights for everyone.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make Asian foods, especially Thai curries. They're full of flavor, spice, and vegetables; and who doesn't love coconut milk?
My favorite family cooking traditions
None, really. But, when I was younger I ate chili, spaghetti and pancakes every week until I moved out on my own. Needless to say, I don't eat those anymore, really.
My cooking triumphs
Every trip to the kitchen ends in triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Anything that's too structured and recipe-followed.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera
this was a very easy recipe to make, actually. tasty. lots of vegetables. very seasonally appropriate. the only change i made was i didn't use any fresh basil... my grocery store didn't have any. bummer.

Pad Thai
while this wasn't terrible tasting, it didn't taste like Pad Thai. definitely not enough sauce; which should've been made with lime juice instead of white wine vinegar. and, the recipe didn't call for peanuts! that's an essential to Pad Thai. i do not recommend this one. there are definitely better Pad Thai recipes out there.

Michael's Foccacia Bread
perfect bread. it makes a lot and keeps really well for a long time. on my second attempt, i made it into pizza, halving the recipe and using 1 c. whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 c. white bread flour. still so delicious.
