About this Cook
I attend the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and well...I LOVE to cook. When I'm in the kitchen, I'm in the "zone." I love making food, sharing food, EATING food, and trying different dishes. Even though I'm a college student, I haven't allowed dorm food to muddle my pallet and since my mum is one of the best cooks ever I have pretty high standards for what "good food" is. I have a sweet tooth and am constantly trying to recreate what I've had in restaurants and bakeries. I think Melbourne, Australia is probably the best city in the world to find great food in EVERY corner! I just got a citron colored KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer and I adore it!!!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts: cakes, muffins, custards, anything chocolatey
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Singhalese...so anything my mum cooks is delicious! One of my favorites are crepes with a carmelized coconut filling...yum!
My cooking triumphs
Recently I made really great salmon and a lot of people like my buttermilk-battered calamari. All my baking triumphs can be attributed to this awesome website! :)
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make empanadas from scratch once and the pastry came out as hard as rock...I've been afraid of making empanadas ever since!

Party Pinwheels
Awesome recipe for simple, summery appetizer! We used tortillas we had in the fridge and cut everything in half since and still got about 27 pinwheels. We used white tortillas (that's what was home), very thing deli turkey, reduced fat cream cheese, regular onions instead of green onions, and

D's Famous Salsa
I used one can of Mexican style stewed tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes (with no salt added). I added a dash of chili powder and only 1/2 a teaspoon of salt because I felt that there would be enough from the stewed tomatoes. I used 1/2 of one fresh jalapeno (with the seeds), and this provided the perfect amount of heat. I, personally, could handle more but this amount makes it enjoyable for everyone. I used a food processor and used the pulse button only a few times to get the right consistency! Excellent recipe!

Golden Rum Cake
Delicious!! I did as one reviewer suggested and sifted the yellow cake mix and pudding to ensure that the batter would be clump free and the cake would turn out fluffy. I also substituted 1/2 C. Skim milk instead of 1/2 C. water into the cake batter. I used a dark rum I bought while I was in the Dominican, and it was a-mazing! My cake only took 40 minutes to bake, so make sure you watch yours while it's in the oven. I also used a long wood skewer to poke holes all over so the rum sauce would seep in. It turned out beautifully!
