About this Cook
So, I know how to cook in theory: heat food. I just don't know how to cook well.
My favorite things to cook
Fish, pasta, rice and other grains. Veggies. All the veggies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A lot of christmas recipes passed down from my mother's family, who are Swiss in origin. My Da's spaghetti sauce is legendary, as is my mother's chili.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally got the hang of cooking zuchinni perfectly.
My cooking tragedies
Any one of the numerous times I am too engrossed in something else to hear the timer go off. Also, burning bacon in the wee hours of the morning. Housemates weren't happy.

Fluffy Pancakes
Made these with a friend and they were delicious. Interesting tip with the vinegar, I was skeptical at first but it worked out fine. I liked not having to buy buttermilk... one doesn't actually plan to make pancakes, they just make 'em.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Followed the recipe exactly, and they were great! I did have some left over blueberries, so I stuck them into the middle of some of the muffins. Both tasted excellent. Love the crumb topping.

Creamy Hot Cocoa
This has become my staple cocoa recipe--I'll never buy hot cocoa powder again. I found it far too sweet, but cutting the sugar down to 1/2 cup on my next batch made it just right. I also swap the vanilla at the end out for a splash of khalua, but it tastes great virgin too.
