About this Cook
I'm a resident physician who likes to bake and cook in my free time (what little of it I have).
My favorite things to cook
I bake more than I cook. I've had recent success with baking bread thanks to my new kitchen thermometer. I've been trying to bake some of the breads I find in Chinese bakeries with some success.
My cooking triumphs
I made my best looking loaf of honey oat bread and took a picture of it with my phone. It was the first time it came out of the oven without any cracks on top and it was delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a double batch of chocolate cupcakes to bring to work and already had the second tray in the oven when I tasted one and realized I had forgotten to add the sugar.

Pumpkin Pie Squares
Made these for the first time today and they're delicious! I followed some suggestions from other bakers: increased the crust by a ratio of 1.5, but only kept the brown sugar to 2/3 cup (I don't like my baked goods too sweet). Baked the crust for 12 minutes. Followed the recipe as written for the filling except only used 1/2 cup white sugar. Baked the whole thing for 30 minutes, then let cool for a few hours before cutting into it. Will definitely make again!
