About this Cook
Mid 20's. I recently got married and loving every minute of it. We've been together for around 6 years and finally decided the time was right to tie the knot! He is the one that got me started cooking. His uncle was a chef and taught him. I took that knowledge and ran with it!

Savory Caribbean-Inspired Sweet Potato Cakes
Simply Amazing. I'm a huge fan of potato cakes, and an even bigger fan of sweet potatoes! So was really excited to try this recipe. Flavor was amazing. I followed the recipe completely EXCEPT I found the mixture to be too wet and in reading some of the comments I figured it would have the same problem of falling apart that others had ran into. To fix this I added 1egg and around 1/4 cup of flour to give it a little body. They fried to a perfect golden color. The outside was perfectly crispy and the inside was still creamy and amazing! Even the hubby says they were a 5 star! We will definitely be having these again!

Sourdough Pancakes
These were amazing. I was a little concerned the sourdough taste would be overwhelming (my starter is a very strong one). However, I was pleasantly surprised. These were light, fluffy, and had an amazing flavor. I did add a little flour as my batter was so thin that I'm not sure it would have made crepes, and I added about a teaspoon of vanilla. With syrup these were some of the best pancakes that I've made!

San Francisco Sourdough Bread
Very good. Light and delicious. I added onions and garlic to the dough as well as on top of it. Made two loaves, gave one to friends and kept one for my husband and myself. Will definitely make this one again!
