About this Cook
I am a 21 year old college senior. I live in a small apartment, but it has a good kitchen and I am always in it (when not studying, of course).
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake - a remnant of my mother, I believe. Also, I like trying new foods, making chicken, pastas, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Scones, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and snickerdoodles.
My cooking triumphs
I'm just a beginner, but am doing okay. Some things have turned out great, others have flopped. But, I still enjoy it and continue to return to the kitchen.

Albino Pasta
I made this last night when I needed a complement to my Italian breaded chicken. It was great!! Like many others, I made some alterations to the recipe and I encourage people to do so as the original seems boring. I sauteed some onions, several cloves of garlic (minced), and a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a pan while the pasta was cooking. I also added in some broccoli and sauteed that for a bit, just until it started to get a bit of brown on the edges from the garlic and oil. I added this mixture to the cooked (and drained) penne pasta and stirred. Lastly, I added some garlic salt and lots of shredded parmesean cheese (probably 1/2 cup or so)! This was important for flavoring. It was fabulous!! I ate it with "Angela's Easy Breaded Chicken" which I also got from AllRecipes; eat with a slice of lemon on the side (I love lemons). For a new cook like me, this recipe was simple and enjoyable. Thanks so much!
