About this Cook
I'm only 19....I've been baking for years.... but I'm just sort of starting to cook lol out of necessity. I'm better with the quick and easy stuff but hopefully in eventuality will be decent enough to play around with the more complicated recipes. ....and sure... taste is paramount.... but presentation is up there almost next to it.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favourite... I'm picky picky and then i eat too much of something and get sick of it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
....no so much in the cooking department but we do have Grandma's Apple Pie, and Grandmas Butterscotch pie....as well as my Mom's Pecan Pie that I'd like to figure out one day..... pastry and I have yet to get along.
My cooking triumphs
My improv Chicken Parmesan... Dad looked at my Mom and said this was the best dinner he'd had in a while.... and my Mom looking from him to me and saying that I'd made it.
My cooking tragedies
Hah.... the list is so long. My favourite however, happened when i was little and didn't understand how to make grilled cheese....so i made it my way. I microwaved a few pieces of cheese.... toasted two slices of bread and tried to put it together.... lets just say it doesn't taste quite the same.

Best Brownies
If you make them correctly (i.e don't over bake) you will love these fudgy brownies. In a pyrex 8x8" mine were done at 20mins. If your toothpick/knife/fork whatever you use to check them comes out with a few crumbs on it they are done. If the utensil comes out totally clean you have over baked your brownies. When done right its hard not to eat the whole pan by yourself. These brownies don't need frosting at all they are sweet enough on their own.

French Toast II
If you are having trouble getting your french toast to cook all the way through: If you are making a large batch turn your oven to 350 and put them on a foil lined baking sheet AFTER you have cooked them in the pan/griddle. By the time you are ready to start serving you will have fully cooked french toast. If you are making a small batch (i.e for one or two); you can always pop these into the toaster (after they have been cooked through in a pan/griddle) if you think they need to be cooked a little more. On a side note: these freeze and reheat well in the toaster and leave your kitchen smelling wonderful. Also if you know you don't like nutmeg, or you are cooking for a "picky eater" cut back on the nutmeg! .....I add vanilla to this recipe because well I put vanilla in just about everything. Overall a great recipe easy to customize after you make it the first time. (i've always mixed the cinnamon in with the egg even though it gets a little clumpy but if you mix well and swirl it before you dip the bread it makes a lovely dark swirl on the bread). -Happy baking!
