About this Cook
I'm a dangerously uncool college student with lots of time on my hands. I enjoy filling those deep, life-defining moments with cooking random dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything as long as it turns out perfectly.
My cooking triumphs
kimchi was probably my one-hit-wonder. it was perfect my first time making it. i had no idea how simple it was!
My cooking tragedies
Ricotta Cheesecake, japanese cold noodles, japanese pancake......more to come.

Butternut Squash Soup II
i never write reviews, so this means a lot coming from me. i am a VERY picky eater, and i usually don't mind making full-fat recipes. this recipe is SO GOOD on its own that you don't even need the butter in the first place. i've made it several times, and here is how i do so: i roughly cut up all the veggies (and throw an apple in there if i have one), saute them with a drizzle of EVOO for five minutes, pour a little chicken broth over the whole thing, and let it simmer just until the veggies are soft. then i get my hand blender (the kind with a wand--a lifesaver), and blend that stew up. it's so delicious and healthy. i roughly follow the recipe now. it's pretty hard to mess up! another tip: i get the pre-cubed butternut squash from trader joe's. i don't need to cut my own, and i just throw the whole bag in there.

Banana Crumb Muffins
this was a really easy recipe. i halved the recipe and i only had one banana, so i spooned in some apple sauce to compensate. at first, i was kind of disgusted by the smell of the muffins when they came out of the oven (kind of like burnt apple sauce), but the taste was just fine. i couldn't taste the apple sauce at all. additionally, do NOT make the same mistake i did! for the crumbs, i added TBS of butter, versus tbs--like you are supposed to. That resulted in a panic of shoving more flour and sugar into the mixing bowl. Like other reviewers, i followed the tip of sprinkling the crumbs on the muffins during the last five minutes of baking. it worked, but i had a little bit of a struggle trying to get them to stick to the muffin tops. next time i'm going to at a tsp of vanilla to the whole batch. overall, the taste was excellent!
