About this Cook
I'm a university student living in a dorm with a kitchen. Having moved straight from high school into a freshmen/sophomore dorm with a mandatory dining plan I didn't need to cook every meal. Now things have changed and I rely strictly on my own abilities.
My favorite things to cook
any kind of pasta and every possible cupcake recipe under the sun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom inherited her mother's amazing recipe and I grew up eating almost anything. My mother's side of the family is Russian, so there was some eastern European. My dad's side has a tradition of commercial salmon fishing and fish was a constant growing up.
My cooking triumphs
cooking a WHOLE chicken that my floormates LOVED, as well as many delicious cupcake recipes and yummy liqueur icings!
My cooking tragedies
cake in a very small pan, and some sort of beet/squash/turnip concoction.

Valentino's Pizza Crust
This recipe is so easy! I have made it atleast 10 times now. I usually replace 3/4 of the flour for whole wheat and add herbs and garlic. It is also really good without toppings as sort of a herb and garlic flat bread mmm

Greek Orzo Salad
yum! I used to make it without the artichoke hearts but it always seemed like it was missing. They give the salad the kick it needs!

Red Rooster
YUM! I love how the bitter and sweet neutralize one another in this drink! Goes down a little too easy though..
