About this Cook
Hi, my name is Erika and I love to cook and bake!!! Ever since I was a child, I just loved to eat. I literally ate so much food that my friends would call me the "Cow", while they all got cool names like "Snake or Flamingo". The main point is that my hobby of eating eventually led to wanting to learn how to cook and bake. I am no chef by any means, just a college student who learns by trial and error and by the greatest cook I know, my father.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Always making home cooked meals for dinner time which lets my family and I catch up with one another.... Bonding over food is the best!!!
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I hear somebody at a party say: "Who made this!!! Its so good!!!" or when I see that my dish is completely eaten before I can even take a bite myself :D
My cooking tragedies
While baking, I once forgot that my dad always leaves a cooking pan that contains a lot of oil in it, in the oven. At that time, I was just beginning to start loving to bake and cook so I was very inexperienced and very forgetful. So I turned on the oven to a high temperature without thinking to check if there were any items inside of the oven first. A couple minutes later, i started to smell something funny and soon realized the pan of oil in the oven. Thank goodness I remembered because leaving the pan of oil in the oven a few minutes longer would have led to the chain of events of: the oven blowing up, my parents house engulfed in flames, and the scene of me being murdered by my parents if my instincts didn't kick in........ :D
