About this Cook
I LOVE AllRecipes.com! I just turned 26 years old and 2 years ago I didn't know anything about cooking except making pasta . This website has given me the desire to cook and I have learn so many tips from the people leaving reviews!!! This website is much better than a cooking book as I can see the ratings and pick the best (cookies, cake...)recipe. In a cookbook you don't really know what to expect until you have cooked it!
My favorite things to cook
Cakes!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
Great recipe although I would suggest to reduce the amount of salt!

Whipped Cream
Works great! I put my bowl and mixer in the freezer overnight. I beat it by hand and it was ready in 5 min! I put at least 2 TBSP of sugar because it was definitely not sweet enough.

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
After trying this recipe several times, I finally got the perfect tortillas by making these changes: I used a pancake griddle to cook them. That way it was evenly cooked with no brown spots. I used all Olive oil, that I mixed with the hot water before adding to the flour (Much easier than rubbing the shortening in the flour and then adding the water!) Add a few more tablespoons of water than the recipe calls for and it will be easier to roll out. (But don't add too much otherwise it will become very sticky) Also the tortillas tasted better when I cooked the tortillas immediately after preparing the dough (no need to let the dough sits for hours - it drys out!)
