About this Cook
I'm a 27 year old female living in Santa Cruz, California. I love my cat and anything artistic. I'm really into loud flavors and loud music. Unfortunately, I really like to shock people and am socially abrasive. For instance, I chose the Cookie Jar icon/pic cuz two of the cookies resemble ta-tas. I guess you dont have to love me, just my taste in food.
My favorite things to cook
Sauces, pastas, desserts, main dishes, salads, cooking with garlic, onion, meats, anything and everything really.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Moms Meatloaf, Moms BBQ Chicken, Moms Cheez-It Chicken, Moms Chicken Noodle Soup, and Moms Ambrosia Salad. (I'll put these on here soon... If I can get them.) My Greenbean Casserole.
My cooking triumphs
1- Wonderful Cornish Game Hen meal I made for Xmas the first time it was held at my house. 2- A stuffed meatloaf. 3- The 'Cookies and Cream' deal I did from 2 recipes on here. ***Try my Famous Guacamole when I post it on here. It's the 'cats meow'!***
My cooking tragedies
I made a nice romantic meal for my boyfriend when we first hooked up, but I undercooked the chicken so it was basically raw (dont ask me how). What a waste.... Not a very good impression either. Good thing I made up for it. ;)

Whipped Cream
Okay dude... I did this BY HAND. My boyfriend and I took turns doing the 'whipping'. I think it turned out quite yummy. edspecially used as a dip for this sites Award Winning Chocolate Chip Cookies. I used regular sugar and twice the amount of it and the vanilla. I love that you can play around with this basic base. Thanks for sharing. :)

Emily's Excellent Taco Casserole
Interesting. So while I was making this, I was scared and a little disappointed. Then when it was done and I garnished it, and it looked better, I felt okay. Then when I ate some, I almost finished half the pan by myself. I used Hot Chilli with ground beef and Jack Cheese. I dont know if it was because it was flavored with hunger, but it was pretty good. Oh, and I'd call this "Nachos".

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
Woah... I cannot explain to you how delicious these are. I used the allrecipe site and made the homemade basic whipped cream and put it on these. My boyfriend wants to marry me now and I feel like I can go on Americas Top Chef and just make these over and over and win the season. I halved the recipe and added a little salt and baking powder and extra vanilla to the cookies. I used reg. sugar and added extra for the cream. I made these cookies pretty thick, and they stayed soft overnight. Sooo good...THANKS!
