About this Cook
I'm 26 years old. My fiance and I just bought our first house, so we're finally trying to grow up and start eating at home. Only, I'm not the best cook. We're quickly finding that even purging the bad stuff, it's far less expensive than eating out every night.
My favorite things to cook
I am really enjoying baking. I love the way my co-workers light up as I bring them each new treat. I also really enjoy pies. I get a different sense of accomplishment from anything that comes completely from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from an unconventionally small Italian family. I had a single father and he did all of the cooking. He was so overprotective, he worried that I would burn myself.
My cooking triumphs
I'm finding that I'm generally good at following directions.
My cooking tragedies
I really like plain tortillas burnt to a crisp. My fiance swears that it's merely default due to my long time cooking skill.

Healing Cabbage Soup
This was quick and easy to make, but nothing special.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken
This was my first time making / eating chicken adobo. I used a cheap bag of frozen chicken breasts. It was wonderful. So easy and so tasty! I actually enjoyed the pungent, tangy smell and flavor. In fact, I might go with a more intense vinegar than plain white next time.

No Bake Cheesecake II
Cheesecake is my favorite dessert! This one isn't my favorite. I prefer something more tangy and cheesy. But, it was delicious and took me only 5 minutes to prep! I cut the cool whip back to 1.5 C because it was already too much filling and I thought it would help retain the cheese flavor a little. I used powdered sugar instead of granulated because that's what I had on hand. Served with cherry pie filling on top. Turned out great! Thanks for giving me a way to enjoy cheesecake without having to worry about cracks, water baths or sinking!
