About this Cook
I am a twenty-year old college kid doing the bounce between campus and home. I study engineering in Chicago during the school year. If I am not at school learning about structures, I engineer recipes and research the structures of a good meal.
My favorite things to cook
I like to think that I am a confident cook when it comes to trying new things. I like to try a little of everything, with the exception of fish and shellfish (allergies).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time family gets together, we make egg rolls. My mother learned how to make them from her mother. I heard that it was difficult at times because my grandmother would make measurements by pouring ingredients into her palm.

Applesauce Sandwich
I can't believe I actually tried this. The texture was terrible and (not surprisingly) tasted bland. Even if the bread is toasted properly, the sandwich sags and resembles eating pre-chewed food.

Double Tomato Bruschetta
Turned out perfect. I didn't have sun-dried tomatoes on hand, but it didn't need them! I mixed ingredients into a large bowl (minus bread/cheese) and chilled until ready to eat. The flavors blended well and were great on toasted French bread.

Best Black Beans
This is a great black bean recipe. I took advice from past reviews and reduced the onion to my preference (about 1/4 of a small/medium onion) and cooked with chicken broth. The beans came out very spicy for me so I will cut the spice in half next time I make it. :)
