About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
Falafel and cucumber yogurt sauce, that one chicken with the cumin and the tarragon and I guess way too much olive oil, lentil soup, anything I make that my girlfriend is skeptical of because she almost always ends up liking it, every single time I fix waffles. And, of course, my own personal genius: basil in chocolate pudding. Everyone makes that face, but, in the words of my best (and utterly incredulous) friend, "It tastes like Christmas!!"
My cooking tragedies
That time I bought a million lasagna noodles that I thought were no-cook-needed and put them in and made the driest lasagna ever. ... Twice. Also, this really gross bean soup one time.

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)
Exactly as desired! We followed the advice of other commenters and halved the soy sauce. I might toss in a tiny bit of ginger next time, but maybe not - this really was just what we wanted, and ridiculously easy to boot.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
This is such an interesting selection of flavors! It's one of those dishes where I had a hard time getting into it the first time, because it was so far from anything I was accustomed to, but then I found myself craving it a few weeks later. Easy, cheap, and delicious! Oh, and I make mine in a rice cooker. I cook the lentils as suggested for ~15 minutes, then dump them (water included) and the rice into my rice cooker. I then use the lentil pan for the onions, and can cut down on the dishes a little.

Vegetable and Tofu Stir-fry
This was delicious, and super easy! We used frozen stir fry veggies and did a half/half mix of mirin and rice vinegar for the sauce. Turned out wonderfully, and didn't feel greasy at all.
