About this Cook
I'm 29 and survived college on Ramen noodles and Easy Mac. I never EVER cooked before I got an always hungry boyfriend a couple years ago. Luckily as I've been learning he eats just about everything, as long as there's meat in it! I have found that coming home from work and making dinner is a time for me to relax and unwind from the day. This website has been WONDERFUL to encourage cooking. I love the reviews and hearing people's own experiences with the various meals. P.S. My picture is Sam, my devoted 10 year old cocker spaniel I've had since I was 19. He's my "kid"! (I also have a 8 year old orange kitty named Cheeto.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum is really into baking, so far, I have not found that I have inherited her talents. I would love to be able to cook a roast leg of lamb like her's for Easter dinner, as well as her British Mince pies at Christmas! My dad grew up on a dairy farm so his meals were always made with fresh from the garden veggies and fresh from the cow milk...sadly I also did not inherit any kind of green thumb so fresh is as fresh as what the grocery has! Maybe one day! :)
My cooking triumphs
A true triumph for me: My first loaf of bread! My mum and grandmother have ALWAYS made their bread from scratch (without the help of breadmakers and KA mixers.) I'm a 3rd generation bread baker now, yay!! :)
My cooking tragedies
I volunteered to bring homemade pumpkin pies to our "Friendsgiving" dinner. Not sure how I screwed up the filling...but it tasted like you were biting into a spicebox! Must have mismeasured :(

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs
Doubled the sauce so that I had an ample amount to marinate and also use to baste and serve with. Used a mix of siracha and Thai garlic chili paste.

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever
Added an apple per another reviewer and also roasted the squash beforehand. Pretty good!

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Not a scrap of this left at our Christmas Party! I only used one block of cream cheese. I also served with Hawaiian rolls to create sliders.
