About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Pasta and soups, I love to bake pretty much anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas and Thanksgiving we always have candied yams, baked corn, peaches and orange juice, and homemade rolls. For Easter we have the same except instead of peaches we have a delicious dessert dubbed "orange jello ice-cream stuff".
My cooking triumphs
My brother's wedding cake. It was alternating white and strawberry cake layers, and it was definitely an experience!
My cooking tragedies
A chocolate chip cake with a caramel filling and chocolate glaze. The cake crumbled apart, the caramel ended up as one giant lump, and the chocolate hardened almost immediately.

Curried Butternut Squash Soup
This soup is wonderful! I roasted the squash first rather than simmering it in the broth and I used a can of coconut milk in place of the half and half, but otherwise I followed the recipe. I've made it a few times and tried slight variations, it's great with either honey or maple syrup to sweeten it and I actually prefer it with vegetable broth rather than chicken broth. I also reduce the cayenne as a personal preference, I can't handle much heat and a 1/4 tsp was a little spicy for me.

Banana Strawberry Oat Bread
This bread was ok. I was looking for a way to use up some strawberries before they went bad. I followed the recipe except I used 3 bananas, which ended up making enough batter to perfectly fill the two pans. This bread just seems to be missing something, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I added a little cinnamon, brown sugar & walnuts on top which helped, but I think I'll stick to my regular banana bread.

Sweet Sage Cream Sauce (without the Sage!)
This was good, it is pretty sweet but it pairs well with butternut squash. I followed the recipe except I did add some dried sage & I used skim milk and then thickened the sauce with cornstarch. Next time I think I will reduce the amount of brown sugar to make the sweetness a little more subtle & add a bit more pepper, but otherwise we liked it.
