About this Cook
I'm not an expert cook, but trying to learn. I love to eat and have a major sweet tooth. My dessert experimentation has made megain about 10lbs so far.
My favorite things to cook
I usually cook simple recipes... anything that goes over rice or pasta like jambalaya, curries, etc. I love making dessert, but 1/2 the time doesn;t turn out as I'd like. Still learning.
My cooking triumphs
Making beignets and having them puff up perfectly.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make homemade brownies. I think the store bought mixes have perfected it, and have not found a recipe that even comes close... even from very nice bakeries.

Asian Orange Chicken
This came out perfectly! The chicken was crispy and the sauce was flavorful even though I had to slightly improvise as I ran out of some ingredients (I doubled the recipe to feed more). It was worth all the work and I'll likely make it again.

Lemon Pie II
Easiest pie recipe ever! All I added to this was the zest of a lemon. Great with whipped cream and/or blueberry sauce.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins
YUM!!! Perfect recipe (also a great base for some creativity) and so easy to make. I also lessened the sugar a bit and they were still really sweet and delicious. I added a touch of cinnamon, omitted the nuts and added peanut butter chips. I also subtracted a little more white sugar so I could add some brown sugar.
