I can only bake. People request that I do not cook :) I love adding new flavors to traditional baked goods though!
My cooking tragedies

Light Zucchini Casserole
Loved this recipe! I have to be honest that I took a lot of liberty with it because I didn't have many of the ingredients and I was making it for coworkers that don't like onions. But I think that's the most appealing part of this casserole--the fact that you CAN change it to fit your preferences and it still tastes great :) Here is what I did: 1. Used both yellow and green squash and omitted the onions 2. Added spinach 3. Used the following spices (replacing the cheese): turmeric, garam masala, coriander, indian chili powder, salt and pepper. 4. Added cilantro and curry leaves 5. Made my own biscuit mix because I didn't have any prepackage stuff 6. Squeezed all the liquid out of my vegetables Really, really good and my coworkers loved it! :)

This was really easy to make, not sure about how authentic it is--but they tasted good enough. I'd probably make these again if I didn't have a lot of time and just wanted to indulge a bit. I'm sure there are scones that are more authentic and taste better, but these are really good for only spending 30 minutes in the kitchen!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie
Really great recipe...after I made some of the changes that other folks have written about below (hence the four stars). Instead of using all half and half, I used one cup of coconut milk. I also swapped cornstarch for the flour. I was really scared when I was making this because it started getting lumpy, regardless of the fact that I was mixing it the entire time! I also freaked out when it was multiple colors in my fridge after 5 hours...alas, when I woke up in the morning to check on it--it was fine! Everyone in my family loved this pie as well :) I also made my own whipped cream to top it instead of using the frozen kind.
