About this Cook
I'm your standard cook in her 20s, trying to keep my boyfriend and myself fed on a budget but still choosing healthy recipes. I enjoy something I can make easily and possibly stretch for more than 1 meal.
My favorite things to cook
Most things with chicken breast, anything I can use frozen veggies with, Amish Friendship Bread, spaghetti and marinara...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's chili...the best I've ever tasted. I have yet to make it though.
My cooking triumphs
When I made Angel Food Cake for the first time, I felt AMAZING, like everything after that would be a breeze! Then I had a slice of it and felt even more like a cooking rockstar :P
My cooking tragedies
Do not underestimate the power of too much celery seed...

Easiest Egg Nog
So yummy! I'm from CA and have only ever had the thicker, store-bought egg nog. However, my boyfriend (from IL originally) used to make egg nog with his mother and said this was an awesome version of the type that he was used to drinking. I used a 1/2 tablespoon of imitation vanilla extract and cinnamon instead, and added a bit of brandy to be naughty ;)
