That's me!
About this Cook
I am currently pursuing a PhD in Music History, and love the extra time my degree offers me to cook for my beautiful wife of (almost) 4 years!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make spicy foods: curry, Mexican food, Southern dishes like jambalaya, etc. I'm also a great baker, and am always coming up with new cookie recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum taught me how to make cookies, and I have been improving on her recipes since I moved out on my own. My dad also makes his own eggnog from scratch every Christmas, and it is outstanding!
My cooking triumphs
I made a wassail for this past year's Christmas party and it was a huge hit. I also made all of the appies and desserts myself (with some help from All Recipes!), and had numerous requests for recipes. It's so much more rewarding than just reheating store-bought purchases!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried making ribs, and somehow got the measurements wrong. I put in far too much paprika, and neither my wife nor I could eat the ribs. We tried, since ribs are so expensive, but they were terrible!

Chicken Milano
One of the best chicken recipes I've ever tried. It was easy and SO tasty. I dipped my chicken in milk then lightly breaded them before frying. It made for a nice texture and the chicken held the sauce well when it was served. One other change I made was that I added some white wine to the chicken broth when deglazing the pan and that added a wonderful dimension to the flavour. I will be serving this to guest again and again!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
These are excellent, but 1/2 cup of butter in the topping is overkill. The butter is only there to make the chocolate easier to cut. You only need a tablespoon or two. Also, cut down on the sugar a little and add more graham cracker crumbs. The peanut butter and chocolate is sweet enough.

Banana Cake VI
I am so glad that I tried this cake, as the tip about putting the cake in the freezer after baking is genius. This makes an incredibly moist cake, but make sure you use over-ripe bananas for the best results. I've also started using low fat (and even ultra-low fat) cream cheese in the icing to reduce the total fat content a little, and it tastes exactly the same! I may experiment with some chocolate chips in the future, but this cake is near perfect the way it is. Oh, and I bake this in a ceramic cake pan, like the kind you'd make lasagna in, and it comes out beautifully.
