About this Cook
I am trying to learn how to cook. I think I could be good at it if I actually try. But like most people, I am busy, and it's easy to throw something in the microwave or stop at a fast food restaurant. It's also hard to cook for just me, and on a poor college student budget.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cupcakes... mmmm. Those are the things people love and I like to make people happy!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies before holidays
My cooking tragedies
When I was making sugar cookies and used the salt shaker instead of the sugar shaker on top of the cookies....oops

Mexican Pot Roast
YUM! This is such a great and EASY recipe. I made it for a family event and have already been asked to make it again for the next one. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used pork instead of beef and instead of taco seasoning (I didn't have any on hand) I used some "Mexican Spice". The heat (and much of the flavor!) depends on which hot sauce you use. The first time I made it I used Franks Red Hot because I had a lot of it, and it was good for a crowd. Last night I made it and used Tapatio with a little bit of Ghost Pepper hot sauce. We love spicy food so that was perfect. This tastes great in a taco (CORN tortilla!) with fresh pico and some lime on it. Highly recommend!

Mediterranean Chicken with Eggplant
This was good. Eggplant was a little mushy but I'll chalk it up to my first time ever cooking with eggplant. The only thing I did differently was I only used 4 chicken breasts (that's what I had.) And before baking I sprinkled the top with panko and parmasean. Then for the last few min I put it on broil without the cover. It was pretty good.

Chicken Katsu
Yummy! I made this exactly as the recipe said, but I didn't have a meat pounder so I just cut the chicken breasts into 4 strips each. It worked just fine. I was hoping there would be some leftovers but my fiance, his friend and I devoured it! Next time I might put some hot sauce in with the egg for a little more flavor.
