About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was three. My father and I started making Sunday morning pancakes, and from then on I have consumed everything I could about cooking. I was the only 10 year old I knew who read Gourmet.
My favorite things to cook
I am interested in cooking anything that tastes good, specifically things people normally don't see together.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday pancakes as stated above.
My cooking triumphs
My first souffle rose!
My cooking tragedies
I burned rice.... I wasn't pay attention when I was adding water (I was a cup to short), and within 15 minutes of cooking I was absolutely humiliated.

Applesauce
It is imporant to rememeber that apples come in various forms. Some are sweet, others tart. Some have firm flesh and others soft. Therefore, there is no exact recipe for anything involving apples. With that said, this is a great basis to work from. I used Cortland apples, which had a sweet taste and firm texture. I tasted the apple mixture right before I was supposed to add sugar, and it was sweet enough so I left it out. Then when it was finished cooking, I smooshed its with the back of the spoon to make it smoother, but still chunky. A number of people commented it on not getting it smooth enough. Some advice: use softer fleshed apples, add more water and cook for longer, or use a blender, as previosuly stated. Over all this was a great way to make applesauce!
