About this Cook
PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD! As a prep cook in a local diner with a punk rock vibe that serves breakfast all day and classic dishes like meatloaf, catfish ettouffe, and vegan chili for dinner, it's been a great time learning what's important in cooking and where you can take shortcuts. You only have to follow the recipe the first time.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast foods and traditional holiday dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom makes a tin of my favorite cookies for Christmas each year. I hope the tradition will be continued through my generation and beyond.
My cooking triumphs
The Cherpumple Cake, of course!
My cooking tragedies
They've been few and far between enough to have faded from my memory.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili
Very satisfying. Moderately spicy. I shredded a deli rotisserie chicken instead of chopping up just breast meat. Try replacing a can of white beans with black beans for variety. I added half a bottle of lagunitas little sumpin' sumpin' ale and two bay leaves at the beginning of the 15 minute simmer. Definitely going to make this again, and again.

Mom's Island Treasures
My boyfriend was speechless! These cookies are moist and flavorful. I used walnuts since I had no pecans. We're coconut lovers in my house so I replaced half the vanilla extract with coconut extract. Has anyone tried using coconut oil instead of butter? Maybe replace half?

Pita Chips
Easy. Just use whatever dried herbs you already have. Naan bread can be used as a substitution for pita bread.
