About this Cook
I have always enjoyed baking, but, regrettably, woman cannot live by chocolate cake alone. So I'm learning to cook too.
My favorite things to cook
Things with chocolate! I really enjoy baking. I also enjoy sending cookies to people, so I'm becoming something of a specialist of cookies that can be shipped. I also love soup because it easy to divide up and store in my little apartment.

Spicy Turkey Burgers
Delicious! I love turkey burgers as a healthier option to beef. This is a terrific flavor combination with the turkey. Mine did come out a little on the salty side-- with all of the spices, I don't think the salt is really necessary. I'll leave it out entirely next time.

Chicken and Corn Chowder with Thyme
It's not really bad soup, but I found it quite bland and boring. If you're looking for a basic soup for picky kids or delicate stomachs, this might serve the purpose, but I wasn't very impressed. At least I had an excuse to make bacon. :)

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup
Delicious! It's a great warm, comforting, rainy-day kind of soup. The flavor is lovely--it's subtle, so it's not too spicy or too peanut buttery (next time, I might actually bump the spice quotient up a little bit, but I like things spicy.) The tip to microwave the potatoes first was a great one--they cook while you're cooking the onion, garlic, etc. and then you can just scoop the insides right into the pot! Plus, it saves peeling them--something I'll avoid any time I can! One thing...the recipe says it makes 8 servings, but unless you are doing pretty small servings, that's not the case. I serve it as a main dish, and only get 4-5 servings from it. Something to keep in mind if you are also planning to serve it as a stand-alone dinner!
