About this Cook
I am teaching myself how to cook quick, easy and delicious meals without costing myself a fortune in tons of optional ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Pies and I am actually pretty good at them. I just need to learn to cook everything else now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make a dessert called kuchen together. My mom's recipe makes 15 of them so we all participate in making them and going around delivering them to neighbors.
My cooking triumphs
Again, pies :)
My cooking tragedies
Rice- every time, it is either too hard in the middle or too soft and mushy. I have yet to make a perfect batch.

Red Velvet Cupcakes
Mine turned out a little dry - any ideas why? They were still delicious with the frosting though!

Chicken Avocado Pizza
I followed the directions for the most part but used 2 store bought rolls of crescent roll dough as the crust over a large rectangle baking sheet. I had to add an extra avocado to make the "sauce" spread across it. It was so good but I was thinking while eating it - this would be so yummy as a french bread pizza too! Sort of like a bruchetta! That's what I'm doing next time because the avocado confused me at first, I thought I hadn't baked the crust long enough and maybe a bit doughy but as I looked it was the mushy texture of the avocados. So choose a strong dough or crust when making this to even out the textures.

Sonoran Tilapia
I really wanted to make this for dinner but didn't have a lot of the specific ingredients so I substituted a bunch. I used canned tomatoes to save time on prep work, drained them. Also, instead of the Anaheim chile pepper, which I didn't have on hand, I used a sweet red pepper. Didn't have any creole seasoning so I used random spices from the cupboard - dried parsley and cayenne powder. Also, I had a red onion instead of the yellow onion. It all turned out just fine and tasted awesome! My boyfriend even liked it, and that rarely happens. Mine ended up kind of soupy so the rice was a good thing to have to soak up a lot of the juice, and baking the fish made it so flaky and yummy! I gave this recipe one less star though because it turned out soupy and I generally don't dishes like that, however, this was really good still. Thanks!
