Hey guys - it's been a looooong time since I've been on AR! My work has started to crack down on internet usage, and since most of my ARing was done at work (haha), I haven't been on lately. But, I got a random urge to do a blog, so here it goes: I'm vegetarian. It's been three years now… MORE

About this Cook
Well, I only cook for my fiance and myself usually. I'm still learning a lot about cooking, and being on AR is really helping. My fiance gets home from work an hour before I do, so I'm always rushing to get dinner on the table at a decent time. I like weekends, because I can spend as much time as I need prepping and preparing meals.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I'm just okay at regular cooking, but baking I'm pretty good at.
My cooking triumphs
I seem to have a natural affinity for making yeast bread.
My cooking tragedies
Way too many.

Fresh Mozzarella Pasta Salad
This was delicious! Both my fiance and I enjoyed it very much! I let it sit in the fridge for only a short time before serving.

Beer Batter
Here's what my fiance had to say about this recipe: "Awesome recipe! Better than what I've had at most restaurants. Beer batter has got to be cooking's greatest innovation. It has all the charm of beer with the practical greatness of deep frying. The batter bound to the shrimp and created a well integrated taste. The meal was further improved with Booming Onion dipping sauce." He especially liked that he got to drink the rest of the can of beer that I opened to make this. :D I added some cayenne powder and a little chili powder to give it a little kick. Definitely use the sauce from the recipe "Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce" here on AR!!

Blueberry Sauce
This was delicious! I used fresh black raspberries, as that is what I had on hand. The subtle taste of orange juice complemented the berries perfectly! However, I think I will decrease the sugar a little bit next time. I look forward to making this with all types of berries.
