About this Cook
I'm a grad student who cooks as much as I can. Living in the middle of nowhere has forced me to learn to cook many dishes that I was able to easily buy in California. It's been an adventure!

Caramels
These are so incredibly awesome!! So smooth and buttery! I like to use the disposable toaster oven pans (I find them at Wal-Mart) so I can split the mixture to make into different flavors. I've made some with Bailey's, and some with shortbread and chocolate for a homemade version of Twix.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I will never buy chicken pot pie from the store again! This was amazing!!! I did make a few adjustments. Instead of adding water to the chicken mixture, I used low-sodium chicken broth and added a bouillon cube for more flavor. I thought it would be an absolute waste of incredible flavor, so when I drained the mixture, I made sure to reserve the liquid. I used this liquid to make the sauce, and added a few more bouillon cubes to get the right saltiness. For an easy crust that's still sort of "homemade", I used a boxed pie crust mix. This was so awesome. I can't wait to bring it to work tomorrow. This
