About this Cook
I started cooking when I was 5 with my mom's old Easy Bake Oven from the 1960's. Ever since then, I have been baking and cooking! I enjoy to try new things and perfect my favorite recipes. My education has been quite difficult (premed) so my cooking has kind of taken a back seat, unfortunately. Although I do cook and bake whenever I get the chance!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook different ethnic foods. My boyfriend is Indian, so I am always trying to find some really great Indian recipes! Aside from Indian food, I always tend to cook a lot of different pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love helping my grandfather cook Thanksgiving dinner! I always make an apple pie and another "gourmet" dessert.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say making Indian dishes that are actually good! They are quite hard if you are not use to the spices and what goes well with what.
My cooking tragedies
I once really wanted to make chocolate chocolate chip cookies and I didn't have any vanilla extract, so I thought, just use some almond extract! Yea... It was pretty disgusting!!!!!

Tiramisu Layer Cake
Wow ~ I hate tiramisu but I absolutely loved this! I don't care for the strong coffee liquor tastes so I only poured the coffee mixture on the middle layer that already had the instant coffee. The two plain layers of white cake were a fantastic compliment. I highly recommend anyone baking this cake to completely wow his or her guests. :) yum.

Mascarpone Substitute
Outstanding! I used this recipe today for my tiramisu filling. I recommend the recipe as is and would not change it.
