About this Cook
I'm a college student right now, so my cooking supplies are limited. It provides the opportunity to get together with friends though, and borrow their kitchens.
My favorite things to cook
I do a lot of baking because it's fun and easy, and I rarely have to make mu own meals. I also love soups and goulash. I have a friend who got me into cajun food, which is fun
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year, we make my dad a pineapple upsidedown cake. My grandmother also has an easter cake recipe that involves a lot of eggs and about which she is rather finicky.
My cooking triumphs
I stayed up all night once making chocolate eclairs. I've also made a few decent batches of truffles.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried making fudge on my own, the whole mess burned to the pot.

Spinach Cheese Pie
I've never made quiche before and this was great to cut my teeth on. The only thing I regret is following other recommendations to add garlic. For me, the peppers and onions made a sweet and delicious addition. The garlic was a completely dissonent note

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens
Prior to trying this recipe, I'd never before eaten beets. I was very pleasantly surprised. I don't know whether beets will ever beets will ever be a regular part of my diet, but for those who enjoy them, this is a great preparation. Don't remove the skins, because they're actually the best part
