About this Cook
I'm just a teenage boy that has an overwhelming desire to cook. Baking is my favorite and specialty, but any kind of cooking is fun to me. When I'm not cooking I'm outside playing in the sun.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts of any sort are my favorite things to cook because its nearly impossible to gain a negative reception with a fudgy pan of brownies or a moist decadent rum cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family all gathers at Christmas, New Year, Thanksgiving and a couple other times a year just because we feel like it and my Grandma makes an awesome southern dinner complete with mashedp potatoes and gravy, lima beans, pork roast, biscuits, macaroni cheese the works!
My cooking triumphs
I made some of the best bagels me or anyone else in my family has ever tasted and if you have ever tried to make them they take a significant amount of work between the kneading, boiling, broiling, and baking.Ice cream, brownies, mason jar cobbler, rhubarb pie, dinner whatever it may be my family all agrees that i can whip up a 4 or 5 star creation whatever it may be. Recently, i just created my first original recipe, pumpkin cheesecake muffins and everyone loved them!
My cooking tragedies
The closest thing I've had to a cooking tragedy is cookies that were slightly overdone going from chewy/crispy to down-right crunchy.

Moroccan Tagine
I asked my mom to put in the chicken broth for me and she dumped in the whole cartion! To compensate, added a little extra spice and it turned out great. It was still very thick, may have been because of the size of my squash, but because of the added broth was probably runnier than it was supposed to be. Despite the fact that this is 6 servings, i ate a good three of them myself!

Orange Almond Biscotti II
I made these for an open house my mo was doing and everyone raved and had several people ask for the recipe. I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and took out 1/4 cup of almonds and added 1/2 cup of chopped cranberries and just the tiniest squeeze of lemon juice to help moisten the dough a little bit. It was very sticky and had to do as others and just kind of shape it with a spatula, but the finished product was great.

Spaghetti Squash I
Awesome recipe! I love all kinds of winter squash and this was a big hit. I added in sliced zucchini and yellow squash with the vegetables. The feta cheese really makes this good, so don't skimp on it!
