About this Cook
Well, where to begin....I am currently enrolled in a community college, studying art. I first began to love cooking when I took a class in high school about cooking economically. I like to introduce my family to new foods; I've successfully converted them to lovers of Japanese food, even sushi. ^.^ I've considered a culinary career, such as catering, but I'm studying art to become an illustrator, and also the Japanese language.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking! It was my first love, and I've become a convert to from-scratch baking. I've made plenty of cookies, and I've recently mastered the art of cake. But what's really important is meals, so I'm working on my main-dish and meat cooking skills.

Easy Sugar Cookies
These are awesome. Many sugar cookies have to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, but there are perfect for when you want to make cookies NOW, and with a bare minimum of ingredients. I added cinnamon to the recipe and they became snicker-doodles. Also, I didn't follow directions perfectly (I added the sugar to the dry ingredients, and then added chopped butter, egg, milk, and vanilla, and mixed the dough with my hands), and they still came out great.

Best Buttercream Frosting
A little cooking experience and patience is required for this recipe. You really have to wait and cook the flour & milk until it is thickened. The consistency should be about like bread dough, maybe a little less elastic. Don't be put off by the frosting's appearance before the other ingredients are added! When you're done, you'll have an amazingly fluffy frosting! I made a Chai icing out of this by steeping two Chai teabags in the milk beforehand, and it was wonderful. The second time, I made blackberry icing by adding a handful or two of previously frozen blackberries at the end of the recipe. The reason I love this recipe is it only uses one cup of sugar; most icings require four or more cups of powdered sugar. With this recipe, the frosting is not too sweet, and is healthier as well!

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese
Amazing recipe; I believe I added more parmesan than was called for, and I used fresh sage from my garden. Instead of putting the mixture back into the skins, I used four individual-sized casseroles and topped each one with extra parmesan. Wonderful! :D
