About this Cook
I'm a young college student who has recently (re)discovered the joy that comes with cooking/baking. I grew up cooking with my parents, but it was only recently that I have begun to cook on my own - and love it!
My favorite things to cook
In all honesty, I bake more than I cook. I love making cookies, brownies, cakes... anything, really! As far as cooking goes, I tend to stick with vegetarian cooking. I don't eat meat, and I don't really like handling it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father comes from an Italian cooking background, while my mother grew up with a slightly-Swedish one.
My cooking triumphs
I am known to make amazing deserts, quick breads (both sweet and savory), and excellent pasta dishes.
My cooking tragedies
So far, none! Let's hope to keep it that way.

Overnight Coffee Cake
This was pretty darn good. I took it to a study a group, and it disappeared. The only I would say needed improvement was the fact that it came out a little dry. However, I think it was because I didn't have any buttermilk, and instead I used soymilk with lemon juice. Next time, I'll see if I can get some real buttermilk. I'm sure it will be fantastic!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
I made these for my birthday because I'm more of a share than recieve kind of person. I used vegan ingredients so all of my friends could enjoy them - and they still turned out wonderfully. They were crunchy, chewy, and melt-in-your-mouth good. I highly recommend this.

Fresh Fig Cookies
This is a good recipe. I changed it a little bit, because I was pressed for time - I made a bar cookie. If I make this again (if I ever have fresh figs again, I will), I would cut down the baking powder just a little bit to make a denser cookie. They turned out a little cakey for my tastes, but the flavour is good!
