Sparkling Grapefruit Pie
About this Cook
I am a university student who lives at home. When I am bored I like to cook, and for occasions. I am a vegetarian and try to make everything low-fat and low-sugar without compromising good taste.
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are desserts. I love baking and decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. I have dabbled a bit in candy making, but havnt done it in a while.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mainly Brittish, but not very much of it. We dont exactly have any "family recipes", so Im always finding new ones and modifying them to suit my tastes.
My cooking triumphs
Choux buns dipped in chocolate (I was so worried about messing them up), and several unusual pizzas.
My cooking tragedies
A terrible attempt at a weird omelette. I cant remember exactly what I put in it, but I remember cottage cheese and waaaaaaay too many vegetables. It was so gross I had to throw it out (and I hate wasting food).

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary
I have made this recipe twice and it was delicious on both occasions. I only gave it 4 stars though because I made a couple of changes. For the rosemary, 1 tsp was not enough so I used closer to 2 tbsp. For the cheese, I used at least a cup over 2 pizzas it made. 10 minutes was also not enough, it took 15.

Laura's Easy Oatmeal Squares
What a tasty, simple recipe! I made it a bit healthier by substituting almond butter in place of regular butter and 1/4 cup cocoa mixed into to batter in place of the cocolate chips. I didn't need to boil the butter and sugar but just mixed them together.

Sparkling Grapefruit Pie
The only change I made to this was to use a graham cracker crust, both because it was what I had on-hand and I thought it would be better. I also found it only needed two normal-sized grapefruits. All in all it was quite tasty and if I ever need to get rid of some grapefruit I would make it again.
