Hello, my name's Amber and i'm 21. I live in Vancouver with my boyfriend and our 4 fur-babies. Our 2 dogs are Hank(a 3yo lab/bull mastiff cross) and Violet(a 5mo red red nosed pitbull). Our 2 cats are Ebony(a 13yo amber-eyed, white angora) and Oliver(a 21/2yo cream-colored tabby). We also have 2 firebellied toads, 2 mice and 2 green anoles.
My favorite things to cook
my favorite things to cook are anything italian. I also love to make comfort foods and mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To me cooking is comforting. It reminds me of family dinners at my garndmas where we would all pitch in and help cook something. My grandma and I would bake on the weekends and holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not very good at following recipes lol, so i usually take a recipe that looks good and add my own spin to it. I also make up alot of my own recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I am not very good at making rice, so there have been a few mishaps with rice and rice casseroles.

German Potato Pancakes
I have never had potato cakes work for me.. never. These tasted great and had a good consistancy. The only thing I did differently was to add more flour- next time I will only add 1 egg. To those that complained of them being wet- they aren't going to be dry like a normal pancake. There wil be some wetness. Make sure the oil is nice and HOT or the cakes will soak it up instead of fry. Thanks for the great recipe!

Yellow Cake Made from Scratch
This cake is so yummy. I folloiwed the recipe to a T only subbing marg for the shortening. Came out perfect; not too sweet, subtle vanilla flavor.. so good. I didn't find it too dry as others said, maybe they cooked it just a bit too long? Maybe they were expecting something like a boxed cake? This is not a boxed cake. It doesnt have the same texture as a boxed cake; that is good. If you want a good home made cake, this is it. TIP: do not over mix when adding the flour, just mix until you dont see the flour. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Easy Oatmeal Muffins
This is a very good BASE recipe. As is it is bland.. IMO. I added some maple syrup and a little bit more sugar and also some vanilla. I would have added some cinnamon but dont have any. I think with some carrot or apple this would be fantastic. The muffins came out moist on the inside but nice and crisp on the outside. very easy to make.. thanks for sharing.
