About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to make bread, and I'm fond of making laminated doughs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma Teresa knows how to make everything. I'm not sure how or why, but she does. My grandma Vadney specializes in strange things like spicy spaghetti, enchiladas, cabbage soup, and cornbread. My aunt Carla and my cousin Sara are especially good at making American comfort food, like Mac and cheese and apple pie.
My cooking tragedies
One time I was working with puff pastry, and I used a brush to wipe off the flour. Turns out the brush had been the misplaced soot brush. All of my dough turned black. Absolutely terrible.

Pastry Cream
this is almost exactly like the recipe i learned at school. straight into the recipe box :P. for those who have had trouble with lumps. when you add the cornstarch and sugar to the eggs, you must stir it immediately. the sugar can make the eggs lumpy if you just let it sit there. edit i used it again for some banana cream pie, turned out wonderful!
