About this Cook
Don't depend on my review of recipes. Try them out for yourself :)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's banana pudding (without bananas just for me).
My cooking triumphs
Finding the marshmallow fondant recipe on this site. I am truly am disgusted in the marketed fondant in stores. Now all my cookies look instantly beautiful and taste wonderful as well.
My cooking tragedies
Well, it was actually my husband's tragedy. After a long day at work, he had his mouth set on fried chicken. (I don't like to fry) So he decided to fry some chicken. Well when you're not focusing on cooking and you're talking at the same time, mishaps happen. He battered the fried chicken in POWDERED SUGAR and attempted to fry them. He still didn't quite get why he had a black and sticky mess and lots of smoke. I just don't get it. I have always been able to tell the difference, out of a container, between powdered sugar and flour. He wasn't too happy and I couldn't breathe because I was laughing so hard. Gratefully, my sister-in-law was there as my witness. Other than that, he would have denied that it ever occurred.

Indian Chapati Bread
Did not use whole-wheat flour. It was still delicious.

Cod Curry
Dellicious! Added Cayenne and sauteed fresh garlic and ginger. Left out jalapenos, lemon juice and cilantro. I didn't have any and they weren't missed.

Spinach Lasagna Rolls
Used no cream cheese (ran out). Just sauteed seasoned mushrooms and zucchini, lastly added spinach. Spread the mixture along with sauce on lasagne strip. Rolled up - topped with tons of sauce to completely cover and cheese. Heated in oven covered in foil, after cheese was melted broiled the top.
