About this Cook
I am a young cook. I am just learning to cook and totally loving it. I have asian culture in my background and love learning how to cook things. As well as asian foods, I pretty much love anything loaded with carbs: pasta, bread, deserts! YUM!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE making deserts of all kinds. I also enjoy making pasta dishes and cassaroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorite family cooking traditions would have to be making "Christmas Bread" with my grandma and mom every year. Christmas bread is this super yummy, buttery, bread filled with candied fruit. You can try it, it's labled under "Stolen" in the joy of cooking.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumphs are in baking. I have made hundreds of cookies and cakes.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking tragedies, too many to name. One in particular stands out. Okay, so you know those frozen potstickers, so yummy right. Well I was suppsed to make those for dinner, simple right? Well I put them in the pan, and then got a mug for the water. Well I decided to eyeball it. I filled the mug to the top and put it all in. It looked like soup but I figured all the water would just evaporate. When my dad came home he decided to check on them, well we had soggy, mushy dumplings, opps.

Elaine's Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe was really good!! It was very quick and easy to make, and I had all the ingredients already in the house! I followed what many people sugested and added 1 and 1/2 cups of peanut butter. I also added 3 eggs. I found that the cookies were just "peanut butter-y" enough, so that amount was sufficient. However the cookies, were kind of caky for my style. My cookies were perfect after 10 min. in the oven.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Wow, these are some pretty good cookies. I made them for my local garden walk and LOVED them. However, I did run into a few things, I love my cookies cooked and soft but not crunchy, and I found that my cookies came out looking like that but the bottoms were still really crunchy. Also, this is NOT a good recipe to put into the refridgerator for a few hours before you bake, because while I was waiting for my cookies to bake I found that the oats in the dough, seed to absorb some of the moisture in the cookies, so I would advise to make the cookies as soon as you make the dough. You may also notice that, like I did, the batter is really loose and unformed, I would NOT recommend adding more flour because my cookies already turned out a bit dry. However, these are among my favorite cookies. YUM, YUM!!
