About this Cook
I'm quite a bit OCD in the kitchen. I love following recipes. Music is a must at basically all times. I enjoy movies, reading, shopping and time with my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
To be general I am best at dinners and deserts. I love making chicken-y rich comfort foods. And seafood like shrimp and scallops always have a place in my kitchen. Pasta and anything Italian are good too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes this amazing Thanksgiving spread, the star of the show is a wild rice and cornbread dressing, besides the obvious it has celery, giblets and mushrooms in it. To say its the most delicious thing ever is a gross understatement so I am in the process of learning to make it...since my mom never has put the recipe down on paper and its basically made by feeling its a bit difficult.
My cooking triumphs
Cherry Cheesecake. Without a springform pan too. I really need to get one of those.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 18 I had to make thanksgiving all by myself for my dad. No one told me to add sugar to the pumpkin I didn't. I realized how dumb that was and pulled it out of the oven, poured the filling in a bowl, added sugar and poured it back into the crust and promptly put it back in the oven. Actually the pie turned out great but I had to consider it a tragedy that I didn't realize I needed to add sugar.

Sarah's Applesauce
Great recipe! So easy too! I made it for 2 (mine was 198 calories for a nice sized serving) instead of 4....used braeburn apples and added extra cinnamon, half white and half brown sugar plus a pinch of cloves, a splash of vanilla extract and a shot of brandy...turned out amazing. Total keeper.

Hot and Sour Chicken and Cabbage Soup
This is delicious! And easy to prepare. So tasty! I omit the fish sauce and lemon grass and I have used vegetable broth instead of chicken and added extra cabbage and sprouts. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe.

Maybe I did this wrong? But it was not too good I am sorry to say.
