About this Cook
I am a 29-year-old graduate student who loves food, particularly learning what foods exemplify various regions and cultures. I enjoy recipes that allow me to cook entirely from scratch. If the recipe cannot be made from the large collection of staples in my pantry, then I'm not interested.
My favorite things to cook
There is nothing better than baking bread. I also love to try recipes from various regions of the United States, as well as classic recipes from various world cultures. My cookbooks are sorted by region!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to make home-baked bread when I was toddler, and I think these early impressions probably shaped my love for bread. I also love how, when I was growing up, our family always baked one blueberry pie, one pumpkin pie, and one apple pie for Thanksgiving.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole
I lost my old recipe for sweet potato casserole, and this one is now my new favorite. Admittedly, I do often change the recipe slightly, but not because of any fault in the original. My changes: I omit the orange juice and instead add a layer of canned manderin oranges between the middle of the sweet potato mash; I sometimes increase the brown sugar and pecans a little; I bake it in a casserole dish for 40 mins. Yummy!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I pulled up this recipe in an emergency: I had 50 minutes to get a pizza ready from scrath. The recipe was simple, fast, and the dough was easy to work with. It was not the best crust I've ever had, but it was good. We'll be using this recipe again!

Cinnamon Rolls I
This recipe is worth a try! I have made these cinnamon rolls every weekend for the past month. They are fairly simple to make and come out very nicely. They have enough stuffing to be sweet and the dough comes out short and chewy, just the way I like them. I disagree with the reviewers who say they aren't gooey enough. They're about middle of the road--potent and a little wet, but not soupy. I haven't changed anything, except one time I increased the butter to a half cup. This didn't really improve the recipe, so I abandoned that innovation. Also, I have just been letting the buns rise for 40 mins, then cooking them, rather than refrigerating them the night before. (I'm impatient!) Once they are cool, I slather them with vanilla icing.
