About this Cook
I'm a 21 year old college student and waitress living in the Sacramento area with my boyfriend in a beautiful house. I love to cook and craft in my free time, and sometimes it even turns out pretty good!
My favorite things to cook
I love learning to cook vegan and vegetarian dishes, and I'm excited to learn to bake!

Unsloppy Joes
This recipe was easy and turned out pretty well. I love the vinegar in it, it definitely gives it a "meatier" flavor. I found it a little bit uninteresting in flavor, I think it needed a little salt (maybe if you use salted beans it works out?). Anyhow, that mostly just MY salt addiction talking! It was fine- a bit like a vinegary vegetarian chili. I made a couple changes- out of necessity, I used canned black beans instead of kidney beans. I think the texture of kidney beans would have been better, but the black beans were nice, too. A also reduced the amount of chili powder as many reviewers suggested- I wish I hadn't! I kept tasting and adding more and more. Different chili powders have different levels of heat! I used a blend of two types of chili powder, one that is incredibly mild with a nice chili flavor, and an ancho chile one that is spicier. My joe mix wasn't very spicy at all... I don't know of some of the reviewers are sensitive to spice or something, because I would have had to use a pretty hot chili powder to make it too spicy to enjoy. A teaspoon of black pepper also didn't really add much heat. Anyhow, know your chili powder, and add the full amount if it is a milder one, or reduce the amount if you're using a hot powder. (And don't accidentally use Cayenne chili powder- that'll probably burn your mouth right off if you use much of it!)

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
This apple pie was delicious and simple, and pouring the caramel over the lattice top crust made it absolutely gorgeous and golden. Everyone loved it!

Rich and Delicious Banana Bread
Ohh, lovely. I couldn't resist tweaking (added some walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips) and I had to use whole wheat and applesauce since that's all I had on hand... I can only guess that if I hadn't done that it would have only been sweeter and more tender! Excellent simple recipe! Took well over and hour to bake, though!
