A friend asked me today what I cooked for breakfast, which was pancakes, and then reminded me about the first time I made bacon and eggs on a skillet a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure how "cooked" the egg was supposed to be. I made both sides of the yoke a light brown but it was still gooey in the… MORE

About this Cook
Before I moved out and started living on my own, I had never cooked in my life. Now I cook three meals a day for myself (when I can) and enjoy every minute of it. Wouldn't be having as much fun, or learning so much, without this website!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with pasta but I'm trying to learn more about Italian and Chinese (my favorite things to eat when I'm out). I am also trying to branch out to other types of foods just to keep some variety.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My paternal grandmother was an amazing cook and my aunt is pretty good too. I'm trying to learn from my aunt now. My mom doesn't cook much anymore and never volunteered to teach me. That's why I'm 24 and only now learning to cook.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph so far is not burning the building down while cooking... yet.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many so far. Worst is a 3rd degree burn on my little finger by my knuckle... I was trying to flip bacon and that part of my hand touched the skillet. It's been a week and I still have a thin, inch long burn which will probably become a scar.

Gloomy Day Smoothie
I just now tried this recipe (drinking it now) and it tastes great! I used frozen mangos, frozen banana chunks, and pineapple orange juice from frozen concentrate since I had no regular orange juice on hand. Very sweet without need for adding sugar and I get lots of good fruit and yogurt. Thank you!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia
I've never cooked fish before but this recipe sounded fool proof so I tried it. Turned out fantastic! I already bought more fish fillets so I can cook it again! The only thing I did different was I mixed the lemon juice, butter, garlic, and parsley into a little glass bowl and stuck it in the microwave until the butter melted. I stirred that up and poured it over frozen Tilapia fillets. I think it took about 20 - 25 minutes for the frozen fillets to cook. Maybe the original poster used frozen fillets as well? Regardless, fantastic recipe!
