About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Soups and Muffins, you can make a lot at a time and freeze the leftovers. Generally though I love to be creative, substituting healthier ingredients into recipes as well as creating new vegetarian dishes by combining what ever is in the kitchen that week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom made everything from a box or a can, then I learned that fresh ingredients were key to a healthy diet. Now I recreate my mom's comfort foods with fresher, healthier ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
My Giada de Laurentiis-inspired chocolate trifle cake. It took me about 3 hours to make, 1 hour to clean up, and 6 hours to chill. It was dry and awful so I threw the cake away and just saved the chocolate mousse to dip strawberries and graham crackers into

Elizabeth's Extreme Chocolate Lover's Cake
I'm a pretty good cook, but kind of a hit or miss baker, so I was a bit scared after reading some reviews. This was my first time making a cake and frosting from scratch but the cake came out perfect. I'm usually not one for chocolate cake or frosting but I do LOVE rich, dark chocolates and this cake totally satisfied my chocolate tooth. It was decadent! I used mostly 70% cocoa for all the chocolate, and made the frosting and ganache first. I did have to reheat the ganache a little bit to get it to spread but then let it chill before adding the frosting. The cake alone is absolutely delicious even without the toppings, I will definitely make it again!
