yummy chocolate cookies
Summer pic
About this Cook
I am a vegetarian, have been since the summer of 2004. I love cooking mexican food, Italian food, and chinese stirfries. I also like cooking Middle Eastern food, and Indian food, however I cook these less often.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is Mexican food - black beans, guacamole, and my signature fresh salsa (with tomatoes from my garden in the summer :) )
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is a bunch of meat eaters, so most of the "traditions" that I will carry on are sweets. My mom's chocolate chip cookies are great - we call them the chocolate delivery system. Also, we like to make fresh pesto from the basil plants we grow during the summer. We get MOUNTAINS of basil, and make alot of pesto that way.
My cooking triumphs
Thumbprint kisses (Chocolate cookies), pesto, salsa, guacamole, curries, buttermilk muffins, udon tofu stirfry, key lime pie, the gingerbread house.
My cooking tragedies
Bread, chocolate muffins.

Caramel-Glazed Flan
SO DELICIOUS! I used to live in Spain, and eat real flan all the time, and I was disappointed about the flan here in the States. Then I made this, and it was almost the same! Getting the carmel to be just right is the hardest part in my opinion, so, I leave some of the lumps of sugar when I pour it into the baking pan. They get carmelized when you bake it - and it keeps it from getting burnt. :)
