About this Cook
I like eating Best pastime EVER
My favorite things to cook
Things that taste good Things that aren't terrible for you Anything I can add avocado to, YUM
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not frozen vegetables, I'll tell you THAT We, uh, don't really have cooking "traditions" in my family
My cooking triumphs
This like deconstructed sushi bowl that tasted LEGIT This probably way-Americanized but still delicious take on a bistec sandwich Coconut cupcakes filled with key lime curd
My cooking tragedies
Maybe I burnt something once Oh also I probably messed up the consistency of that lime curd but it still tasted awesome

Quinoa and Black Beans
I'd never had quinoa before and didn't know what to expect at all; I also don't really trust myself to properly prepare things with which I only have passing familiarity. I was pleasantly surprised, as it turns out: this was awesome! I know the recipe doesn't call for any particular type of frozen corn, but I used white and am really glad that I did. (Incidentally, now that I think about it, it's the same story for the onion: white onion = a good choice.) I halved the recipe and ended up using a whole can of beans, which I didn't think was too much...but then, I'm a pretty big fan of black beans. The only other place I deviated from the recipe was in adding avocado and grape tomatoes after cooking; getting a bite with a little bit of everything (quinoa, onion, corn, beans, cilantro, avocado, and tomato, all together) was pretty perfect.
