About this Cook
Inspired by Julia Child's "My Life in France", I decided to actually start cooking, rather than just throwing quick meals together. I can follow a recipe well, but don't know much about improvising or creating.
My favorite things to cook
Right now I'm just exploring.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to make the best Christmas fruitcake anyone has ever eaten. Every year, she'd pass the bowl around so everyone got to add a stir for good luck. Not eating that cake as soon as it came out of the oven was the hardest part of my childhood.
My cooking triumphs
I recently made a perfect pie crust from scratch. I don't know if I can do it again, but that one time it was heaven.
My cooking tragedies
Attempting to make fudge with no candy thermometer - I ruined a pot. And I always forget about the last tray of cookies in a batch, and burn them.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
This is a great recipe. My first ever attempt at cinnamon rolls turned out perfectly. I did need to add extra flour to the dough to make it rollable, and next time I might add more cinnamon to suit my taste. Also, I forgot the raisins! So those will go in next time for sure. I love finding nice, simple recipes that don't involve bread machines (I don't have one) or fancy ingredients (I live in Asia, and baking ingredients can be hard to track down). Thank you for this!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie
Very nice pie! I used a tip from "Cindy's Pumpkin Pie" and used melted vanilla ice cream instead of the condensed milk, as it's hard to get where I live. It made too much for my only shallow pie dish, so I'm trying to find a way to make mini pies with the left overs. Served it for Thanksgiving dinner, and it got rave reviews from all - some said it was way better than any store-bought pie they'd tried! :-)
