About this Cook
I'm a busy college student. While my mom still cooks for me, I like to learn a some of my own recipes so impress people during the holidays :). I like to try new things, but stick to safer options when it comes to cooking.. I'm only a beginner!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are things I've cooked before and I know people will enjoy... desserts, casseroles!
My cooking tragedies
I completely ruined the Mac and Cheese from the BOX once. I overcooked it... I never knew you could overcook noodles up until that day :-p... now I'm very careful...

Roasted Vegetables
not exactly how i wanted it to turn out b/c some veggies were getting over cooked and others were still super hard (like the Butter squash and potatoes).. so my mom said next time i should pre cook the veggies that will take longer in the microwave before hand
