About this Cook
School, work... blah.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake just about anything - cookies, muffins, cupcakes, cakes, etc. I've just picked up cooking so nothing really to favor yet but I made the Cajun Potatoes from this site a few days ago and the boyfriend loved them. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom, my sisters and I used to bake pound cake when we were young but since then my mom's moved away from carbs. :( Now I do cookies and now and then for them - Beth's Spicy Oatmeal cookies are a favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Not really as of yet but this Christmas I'm going to try and bake a cheesecake. Or mini cheesecakes. Stay tuned...
My cooking tragedies
A banana bread and carrot cake that both came out mushy. So sad. :(

Classic Waffles
Excellent recipe. Had no milk so used half and half and they still turned out perfectly. Quick and easy to make and would recommend it to anyone with a waffle maker.

Garlic Shrimp Linguine
The measurements are completely off - even taking in the advice of other reviewers, it still came out dry. In order to make this edible, I had to make 9x the sauce and I'd still recommend halving the amount of pasta. I'd also recommend adding the garlic into the butter as it's melting and letting it cook until slightly brown before adding the other ingredients. Then also adding a dash of garlic salt or garlic powder to up the garlic taste. The shrimp needs to be marinated or something beforehand to add taste. Would probably not make this again.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
Too crunchy for my liking and it really wasn't anything special. Not enough peanut butter flavour despite adding an extra 1/4 cup. Don't think I'll be making these again.
