About this Cook
I'm just getting into cooking for other people. I actually have been trying to cook for some time but always thought I sucked, but I'm working on it and getting better I think :-)
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, stir-fries, new veggie meals, any type of baked goodies, comfort food, breads
My favorite family cooking traditions
making inexpensive comfy-feeling meals that also *feel* kinda fancy (but are easy to cook)
My cooking triumphs
Veggie shepherds pie!
My cooking tragedies
nothing seems to turn out *just right* the first few times ;-)

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
this was delicious! i think the key is to taste test it as you go, I added a bit less icing sugar and more cream cheese & lemon and zest than called for, and only a couple drops of vanilla, and really it was AMAZING! i cut the recipe in half and it was perfect to ice the top of a decent sized (lemon) birthday cake - my fam loved it! :-)

Patty's Tofu Burgers
these were alright. I added more spices and tried to jazz them up a bit because they were really really bland the first time around. Anyways, they still feel like they're missing something, I'm just not totally sure what. I don't think I'll make them this way again.

Jelly Cookies
these are DELICIOUS! only thing I gotta say is it's a tough mix if you don't have anything to help and are just using a fork and your arm, but it was TOTALLY WORTH IT because these turned out so good! they taste like shortbread, and they make a lot more than 18. mine made about 30! Mmmm!
