About this Cook
Slowly moving from she-who-burns-pot-when-simply-boiling-water to at-least-decent cook.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta. As the pasta itself cooks, you can focus on the sauce. No time wasted.
My cooking triumphs
Baking almost perfect brownies from an apparently complicated recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much everything up until now.

Double Chocolate Mint Cookies
Delicious. I used margarine instead of butter and next time will use less because the cookies were a bit too flat and greasy. Also, used a mixture of semisweet and mint chocolate chips -- double chocolate AND double mint! Finally, cut the recipe to 24 servings, although next time I'll double the batch because it simply wasn't enough -- the cookies were gone by the end of the day.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken
Delicious! I just wish I had some naan to go with it. I did make some changes to the recipe. I always halve or use only a quarter onion, because I'm not a big fan of onions (I also put in four times the garlic, because -- you guessed it -- I'm a big fan of garlic). I also switch Steps 2 & 3, which times things better. I recommend a side of coconut rice (brown jasmine rice and coconut milk instead of water).

Blueberry Flax Pancakes
Turned out nicely. Not as fluffy as I'd like, though.
