About this Cook
Not much to tell. I'm a simple person with simple likes/dislikes. I'm a sci-fi nerd, metal head, animal lover, videogame and comicbook addict, and probably the last kind of person that one would think would be on this site. My pet peeve is netspeak. U R should not be used in place of you are or you're. Ever.
My favorite things to cook
I specialize in cheesecakes, cookies and pie. In other words, health food. I classify myself as a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ironically for a culture that holds fast to traditions (ie: Southern) in general, my family has none.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my husband's eyes roll into the back of his head from something I've made (in the good way), it's a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
My first bread pudding wasn't anything to write home about.

Jedi Mind Trick
Awesome! I recommend using the ice cream over the half and half. The alcohol flavor is pretty strong in this and the sweetness helps balance it out a bit. Drink enough of these and you really will think you can move things with your mind.

Truly Coconutty Cream Pie
This is a great recipe! I did make some changes for the filling, instead of a vanilla bean, I substituted the regular sugar for vanilla sugar that I always have on hand so the vanilla bean taste is still present. Finally, to cut some calories, I used skim milk. Other than perhaps missing out on some richness from the whole milk, the custard sets just fine for all the cornstarch that goes into it and you don't really miss it. Your standard non-dairy whipped topping also works in place of the whipped cream. In fact, I suggest it readily if 1) you're trying to cut calories again and 2) you're not planning on having the entire pie eaten in one sitting. Whipped cream can revert back into liquid after a few hours and will ruin the leftover pie.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I needed to recycle some raisins and almonds left over from making homemade glug and I thought banana bread would be good so I picked this recipe. WONDERFUL. The only changes I made were adding dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to incorporate the flavors of the glug infused raisins and almonds a bit throughout the dough, and I used 3 mashed bananas instead of 2 sliced. The result was a very rich, very moist bread that melted in the mouth and filled the house with a divine aroma as it baked. Best of all, as the bread took over an hour to get done, most of the alcohol content from the raisins and almonds got baked out, so the result wasn't the least bit boozy.
