About this Cook
Married and in law school (read: short on money and time) but try to put a decent dinner on the table regardless.
My favorite things to cook
Brownies. Cake. Cookies. Pie. And yes, maybe I do have a bit of a sweet tooth.
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I did our first Thanksgiving dinner entirely on our own - homemade rolls, a turkey, real mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie... it was a happy accomplishment, especially given that we had less than two feet of counter space in that kitchen and didn't own a rolling pin or potato masher.
My cooking tragedies
I burn things, a lot (that's the problem with trying to squeeze some studying in while dinner's cooking). I'm one of those people that doesn't dare cook without a recipe... my one attempt to be innovative a few years ago led to the most disgusting mayonnaise-pasta salad known to mankind.

Coconut Syrup
I HATE using my blender, so I left the coconut flakes out. Still very coconuty, with a smooth syrup-like texture. I used lite coconut milk (not coconut cream). Served on top of French Toast soaked in an egg/milk/coconut rum/unsweetened coconut flake mixture, and topped with toasted sweetened shredded coconut. Delicious!

Grilled Zucchini Pizza with Goat Cheese
Sliced them 1/4 inch thin, put them on a baking sheet and into a 400 oven for about 12 minutes. May try a higher temperature next time, but these were delightful!

Monkey Bread I
My husband and I were celebrating our first Christmas on our own, and I wanted to start a new tradition for breakfast Christmas morning. After considering well over a dozen options, I picked this, and it was perfect - easy and delicious. I cut the recipe in thirds and made a single loaf pan, which cooked for the full 1/2 hour. Because I only made a third of the glaze, boiling it for a minute turned out to be a little too long, as it started to get hard. Next time, I'll try for 45 seconds. I'm so looking forward to having this year after year... yum!
