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.

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.

Tofu Chocolate Pudding
This was delicious! I did make some small changes though: I used almond milk instead of soy (it's what I had) and I used brewed coffee in place of the water to enhance the chocolate flavor. I also had a 14oz block of tofu but still used the full cup of chocolate chips. I did need to add some extra milk for it to blend well, I didn't measure though so I don't know how much. After reading reviews I made it in advance so it could sit overnight, I did taste it right after blending and the tofu flavor is still pretty strong (I thought it was still tasty though). After it sat overnight the tofu flavor is almost non-existent. I would highly recommend tasting it before adding any additional sweetener. I almost added some honey from the get-go since so many other reviewers said they added sweetener, but I am so glad I didn't! To me it was plenty sweet as is. I did use firm tofu like the recipe calls for since that's what I had on hand & blended it until it looked completely smooth. It does still have a slightly grainy texture but to me it isn't off-putting. Next time I think I will try it with silken tofu but it's still wonderful with the firm kind.
