About this Cook
Hello, all you chefs! I'm a new chef to the cooking world. I am just breaking into the cooking scheme of life and am slowly compiling a list of recipes together for my arsenal! :) (Also "negi" is Japanese for "green onion")
My favorite things to cook
Desserts! I am always a fan of making deserts! And depending on the season depends on what my key ingredient is; for example, in the autumn days i like apples and pumpkin recipes. While in the winter, i prefer oranges and berries.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my mom still :-) she has the best cook book I've ever seen!
My cooking triumphs
So far I've succeeded in every cookie recipe I've tried *knock on wood*
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make home-made brownies once and.....let's just say I needed more practice....

Blueberry Scones
I made these yesterday and they came out great. I have been looking for a recipe as close to a blueberry scone as I possibly could find, and this is pretty darn close. Right before I found this recipe, I did see a video about baking techniques for scones, which I think made all the difference. So I believe that it's all in the technique. First, I used a whisk to mix up the dry ingredients well. When I added my fresh blueberries, I used my hands, because you don't want the blueberries to burst or get squished while your mixing. Then, when I added my wet mixture to my dry mixture/blueberries, I used my hands again (I didn't have a rubber spatula). Just a slight folding motion until everything was wet. This way, I wasn't over-working it. The batter came out STICKY, but manageable with some flour-covered hands. I made the two small loaves and cut them into triangles. Baked them as so....they were super. I did think, however, that there wasn't enough sugar, because they are not at all sweet, but I think authentic scones aren't supposed to be super sweet. In future attempts I will think about adding maybe 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract to make the blueberry flavor pop more for my blueberry tastes.

Orange Almond Biscotti II
I made this for my boyfriend. He fed it to his family and they begged me for more! I used a lot of comments to make this mouthwatering food. I added and handful of white chocolate chips into the dough as well as putting in a total of 2 Tbsp of orange zest & 1/2 tsp of almond extract. As other reviewers commented, yes it is a sticky dough! Instead of rolling it, I wet my hands and covered my hands with a thin layer of flour and formed it on the greased/floured pan. I took the advice of another reviewer and baked it at 320 degrees. Then as a final topping, I added a nice orange glaze of orange juice, orange zest, and confectioner's sugar to one side of the biscotti. I even covered them and ate them a few days later to let them stale up a little bit, and they were still perfect! 5 stars all around for this recipe!

Grandma Johnson's Scones
This was the perfect recipe for beginners in the scone business! I had made a batch for my boyfriend and he devoured them! Of course, I read other reviewers' advice and concocted their successful recipe: I took Lucia de Wagner's advice and mixed accordingly, then I made the orange-cranberry scones that poshbeki suggested,adding an orange glaze of orange peel orange juice, and confectioner's sugar as the came out of the oven. I followed the original recipe in cutting them into 12 big triangles. I let them cool over night and served them up for a nice brunch! My only thing is that cutting them into 12 slices makes them very big!I recommend littler slices. Other than that, 5 stars!
