About this Cook
I'm an illustration student who likes to kick it up a notch in the kitchen. XD I mostly draw cartoons and comics, watch a fair ammount of anime, read far too much manga and wish I had superpowers. I love cooking with a wok, and have conducted many strange experiments with it to see just how versatile it is. Thus far, I've discovered that there's very little you CAN'T make with it. X)
My favorite things to cook
Various stir-fry's, breads, tortilla's, and yummy slow cookers in the winter. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes a killer manicotti which I was able to pull of a while back - although mine turned out curiously sweet. O.o
My cooking triumphs
Making tortilla's in my 12" wok - I use chopsticks to flip 'em. XD This always weirds people out but they turn out excellent. I successfully made tamagoyaki on the first attempt.
My cooking tragedies
Things go wrong sometimes... I don't want to talk about it. X)

Quick Quiche
Excellent quiche! A good quick basic recipe that can be customized up the wazoo. :D

Delicious Rosemary Bread
Awesome bread! I started making this to cut down on my grocery bill - and because my sister seems to have aquired a mild wheat allergy. I had to make a few adjustments because things weren't turning out quite the way they were supposed to. Proofed the yeast in half the sugar, then added the second half once the yeast had done its stuff. I've also found that six cups of flour is too much - I add in 5, then knead in the last cup - and it usually doesn't take a full cup. As a variation I've been experimenting with wheat flower. It's especially yummy thus far. :)
