About this Cook
I'm a preschool teacher that lives with her food-loving boyfriend, Adam, and our american bulldog, Samson. We love experimenting as much as we love classic comfort food.
My favorite things to cook
Undoubtedly, pizza. Followed closely by tacos.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As long as I can remember, my German grandmother spent the weeks up to Christmas baking intricate and delicate cookies. She passed away a few years ago, but I feel that I still have her with me as I now labor on these precious cookies during the Christmas season.
My cooking tragedies
Our apartment oven is usually 100 degrees hotter than the dial says it will be... this has led to many crispy catastrophes.

Broken Thermostat Curry
My boyfriend has long stated that he does not like curry but went nuts for this recipe. He asks for it on a regular basis. If you're a fan of spicy foods, I would add more red pepper flak and cayenne than what this recipe calls for. For true spicy fans, this curry is a little too mild as is. I substituted chicken stock for the water, double the yams, and used about half the amount of potatoes. I also used canned diced carrots to save time and energy. This is a fabulous recipe that also freezes well. I highly recommend it.

Rosie's Bok Choy Salad
This salad was excellent. Even the pickiest eaters of my family enjoyed it! We're big fans of green onions, so I added more of those but other than that the recipe is great as is.

Chicken Garlic Pizza
I've tried a lot of pizza recipes but I always come back to this one. It's really delicious and a sure crowd pleaser.
