About this Cook
I'm 21 years old, currently living in Toronto, ON. I'm extremely interested in philosophy and psychology. I love to read, write, cook, bake, hike, swim, play chess and watch movies.
My favorite things to cook
Pumpkin turkey chili, garlic bread, chocolate chip cookies, chicken parmesan, pasta, chocolate cappuccino cheesecake
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like making anything with my sister. We share cooking tips and techniques, and it's always easier to try out a new recipe when you have some help! Whenever we start baking we always seem to get into a heated discussion or debate.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make shortbread cookies with a recipe I'd used before. Somehow it turned into a thin, crispy layer on the bottom of the pan. It broke apart and was completely inedible! I don't know what went wrong!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III
I just made these with my sister. She loves oatmeal cookies and I love peanut butter, so these were a perfect compromise! They only needed 7 minutes in our oven. I doubled the recipe as previous commenters suggested, but wish I hadn't. These are very filling, so one at a time is plenty. The icing is really good. This is a great cookie if you want moist oatmeal cookie with just enough peanut butter taste. We'll make these again.

Boterkoek (Dutch Butter Cake)
This was good, and very easy to make. As suggested by previous reviewers, the amount of almond extract is too much. Next time I will use half a tablespoon or less. I replaced some of the flour with ground almonds and added 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. I also did not glaze.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
My sister and I made these tonight. Following one suggestion, we added 3/4 cup brown sugar in place of the white sugar. We added a pinch of extra cinnamon, since we both love it. I think they turned out wonderfully! We did not add cloves. At 8 minutes on a light-coloured pan they were firm, well-cooked, and chewy. Gingerbread perfection! We'll definitely be making these again. :-)
