About this Cook
I am a student at Texas State University. I study, go to the bar, spend time with my dog, and cook.
My favorite things to cook
I'm working on perfecting my own special homemade pizza crust. I enjoy making desserts, although I don't like sugar so I rarely eat them. I love spicy cuisines. My favorite food to cook is Vietnamese. I love grilling and frying. I just recently took up bread making. I found that it eases stress after a rough week of school to kneed the dough by hand.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time I go home to visit my dad we cook for one whole day that I'm there. We fish frequently so we cook mostly seafood and vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
Shrimp pizza, white chocolate brownies with raspberry topping, apple pie, blackened snapper, crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms, onion rings, coconut shrimp, beer battered shrimp, and grilled shrimp embrochette.
My cooking tragedies
I once accidentally marinaded shrimp for a number of hours in 30 minute marinade. Don't make the same mistake! They never look done, somehow it completely changes the taste of the marinade and the shrimp, if the shrimp aren't peeled before you cook them they never will be (the peels get thin and stick to the shrimp). I have had plenty of other tragedies but that was probably the worst.

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel
I was making a fruit cake and the recipe called for candied orange peel. I'd never heard of that before and they didn't have it at the grocery store. So, I found this recipe. I only made orange peels. They weren't my cup of tea because I don't like candy that sweet. They reminded me of those gummy things that are shaped like orange slices. Everyone else liked them, and I'm giving it five stars because whether I liked it or not, it's a good recipe. My fruitcake might not have been so delicious without them! Thanks!
