About this Cook
I recently graduate from college and am living at home with my parents, older sister and younger brother. We're all really close and and spend a lot of time together as a family. My mom is an amazing cook and her baking is just as great. I learned most of my cooking and baking from her, and also my passion for both. My sister and I love to cook together and experiment which is when we usually come up with some of our best concoctions! I also cook a lot with my boyfriend. He's somewhat of a beginner, but he's good at it and has made me some pretty good dinners. I love to cook and love to bake even more. I hope one day I can pass on the same passion I have for cooking to someone else.

Deep Fried Oreos(R)
Just amazing! I had never had these before (yes, I know now what I've been missing), but I had heard how good they were. Made them for my family and every single one was devoured in minutes! It's unbelievable how simple this recipe is and how incredibly delicious they taste! I may never have the need to get a carnival fried oreo...these were just too good!!

Red Pepper Soup
I made this for my family a couple weeks ago and again this week and they absolutely loved it!! My parents are vegetarian so I substituted in vegetable broth but it tasted fantastic. It is very hearty and you never lose the red pepper taste. I actually didn't strain it and thought it gave the soup a nice texture. I also added a little ground cumin and some cilantro and one habenero pepper for a little kick! Great recipe...definitely one of my favorites!
