About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I think I am a more natural baker than a cook. I love baking! But I am working on my cooking skills; trying out the recipes on this site has really helped!
My cooking triumphs
I successfully made an angel food cake from scratch! Right before I put the batter in the pan I decided to puree some raspberries and swirled it in the batter and it turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest downfall in the kitchen is my attention span. I wander away from things because I think I have time, then I forget about them. Combine that with no internal clock and that's a recipe for disaster! I once heard an explosion in the kitchen while I was in the other room and realized that I had forgotten I was hard-boiling an egg. All of the water had boiled out of the pan and then the egg exploded. LOL

Curried Carrot Soup
Great soup and REALLY easy to make if you're a busy person! To thin the soup a bit, I used 5 cups total vegetable broth and a 1/2 cup water. Added a half tbsp more curry powder and a teaspoon garam masala for a bit more kick. Very tasty, low-cal, and the husband loved it!
