About this Cook
Between work and school I don't have a lot of time to cook, but when I do have a chance I love to try new things. I'm actually a rather picky eater, I can't stand the texture of onions or coconut and mushrooms are disgusting to me. I eat very little red meat, mostly poultry and fish and am always looking for new ways to prepare them in order to mix things up.
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 stuff". A couple years ago I made a maple-pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and now everyone insists I make one every year!
My cooking triumphs
My brother's wedding cake. It was alternating white and strawberry cake layers, and it was definitely an experience! Also, my first try at my grandmother's chicken corn rivel soup, it turned out wonderfully!
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.

Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie
Wonderful recipe! There was an awkward moment when I was raving about it and my mom asked if it was better than hers. She insisted I make it for her so she could see for herself, and she loved it too! I did make a few changes, I increased the veggies to 1 cup each and used potatoes instead of celery. I also increased the chicken to 1 1/2 cups. Rather than waiting 5 min to thicken I just increased the temp instead, and I didn't wait an hour for it to cool, I added the cheese and poured it into the pie shell immediately. Yum!

Zucchini Brownies
So good! To save time I threw the zucchini in my food processor and I used olive oil instead of vegetable and butter for the icing instead of margarine but those were my only changes. Great way to use up zucchini from the garden. These also freeze well, so you can just thaw, ice and serve.

Green Grog
Very good, I left out the rum since there were kids there and it was still a big hit. Make sure to use a citrus sherbert! We were running out so asked some friends if they could pick up some more ingredients on their way but didn't specify flavors. They brought raspberry sherbert and the second batch did not taste very good.
