About this Cook
Recent college grad trying to hash out the art of living economically.
My favorite things to cook
Mom's cookies. Perfect, golden brown, slightly crunchy, mostly soft and chewy, melty chocolate morsels of delight...
My favorite family cooking traditions
see above
My cooking triumphs
I figured out what I was doing wrong in 2005: to boil water, you have to put the stove on HIGH. Not low.
My cooking tragedies
There's always something.

Eggplant Parmesan II
I have celiac so I used GF bread to make the crumbs from scratch; I also "sweat" the eggplant as suggested by other reviewers. Additionally, I made my own spag sauce: dice an onion, sautee w evoo, add crushed tomatoes and herbs, simmer/reduce. My boyfriend, who is a Cooks Illustrated junkie and has never made a failed dish, was impressed. Win. :) This was delicious! Thanks!

Pineapple Fried Quinoa
This is actually pretty good! I overdid my quinoa and didn't chop my pineapple as much as I should... but it was still great. Could be healthier without the yolk. Easy.
