About this Cook
I'm 22 years old currently in school full time and working. On my free time I like staying active (gym, rollerblading, dancing), cooking, reading new books, and cooking of course. I dream of one day having a career in the culinary fields, but I'm unsure what that perfect career will be. To date I'm in BBA in Accounting degree and will see where that road takes me!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and to see new recipes out there. I wish I had all the time in the world because I would be cooking 24-7!! My sweet tooth demands a lot of cookies and cakes, but for the most part I stay healthy and like cooking Indian, Mediteranean, and Asian dishes. I also like staying seasonal and get many inspirations from the fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has been cooking ever since I can remember. She is from Japan so as you know food presentation and meticulous planning is a must. I love spending time in the kitchen with her preparing things like gyoza, omochi (sticky rice balls)and sushi to name a few...the longest running family tradition is having the same sponge cake for every birthday for all the family members. My mom must of made that cake over 200 times!

Pecan Turtle Bars
The taste was amazing, I took the advice of others & increased the flour as well...however, I did have to cook it for 15 mins longer than suggested.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way
This was so delicious and moist the meat was falling off the bone. I did it on a rack and the bottom side was a little softer because it had more contact with the steaming process, but that was the only downfall if that?

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
wow, I just made these cookies and I'm eating one right now as I speak. They are sooo good! I didn't use one ounce of white sugar, but instead used mostly brown sugar and a few tablespoons of sweet n low. Make sure you mix the dough till you can barely move the spoon around so it's easier to spoon before the baking sheet. I made 12 big PB cookies and they actually ended up forming together (oops!) next time I'll make sure to use two trays rather than one. They are the perfect texture. Nice and chewy and soft. Yumm-O!
