About this Cook
Hello! I am a multilingual speech and language pathologist who loves working with young children who are medically fragile, inherently disabled, or from underprivileged communities. Helping adults and the geriatric population suffering from neurogenic-based disorders (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, dementia) is another passion of mine that is near and dear to my heart. During my spare time, I like to enjoy the company of my loved ones, and also dabble in arts, crafts, or baking. I enjoy making things with my hands (that does not, however, mean that I'm particularly good at it!), and crocheting, knitting, painting, and drawing are currently my top interests. In regards to cooking, my skills in that area were practically nonexistent prior to college. Because of time, financial, and health reasons, I began cooking and baking during my undergraduate years, which I grew to love! I now consider it to be a fun hobby, and continue to experiment from time to time.

Fruit Muffins
A healthy-tasting muffin! The only change I made was adding 1 tsp of cinnamon powder to the mix. The results produced not-so-sugary muffins that are great as an anytime snack.

Perfect Turkey
My first time making a turkey dinner... turned out delicious! The meat was surprisingly juicy and moist, not at all what I expected turkey to be like!

Mayonnaise Biscuits
Wow, so delicious! The first time I made this, I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made my own by adding 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt to the 2 cups of flour. My boyfriend loved it; he said they had a little saltiness that tasted really good with the biscuits, as compared to the second time I made a batch, when I used store-bought self-rising flour. That second time, I couldn't taste any saltiness at all, it made the biscuits rather bland. So, I definitely recommend making the self-rising flour by yourself for a little flavor! Happy baking!
