About this Cook
I am 26 years old and I love to cook and bake. Sometimes I like cooking more, sometimes baking...depends on the day and what kind of mood I'm in. I tend to cook large meals even tho I live on my own. I'm currently in a long distance relationship and my significant other claims I'm "nesting". Wether he's right or wrong is up to interpretation I suppose. Within the last 6 months I've been working on eating and cooking healthier, using more fresh and organic ingredients (yes, I know, it's so unique and orginal these days). I try to eat 2-3 vegetarian meals a week and am getting better at it! I have a blog not on allrecipes because I'm poor-ish and don't have a credit card.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soup, I rarely follow the recipe exactly, I tend to improvise and change things up as I feel...that's probably what I like so much about making soups, the creativity and flexibility you can take with the recipe. I also enjoy cooking roasts, whole chicken, stews, and homemade pizza.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a mennonite background, the cooking traditions in my family involve a lot of pork and cream and salt. One of the biggest things I've learned from my mother is how to can things and how to use my freezer to store up on pre-made foods. There's always a lasagna in my freezer ready to go!
My cooking triumphs
Getting my parents to try kale.
My cooking tragedies caramel muffins made without baking powder because the recipe didn't list one and I didn't go with my gut, and my first time attempting pecan pie and pie crust did NOT turn out well, the filling never set properly and the dough absorbed a lot of it in spite of the fact that I pre-baked the crust.

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake
Ended up very dense and rich. The Peanut Butter ended up cutting the sweetness of the icing. I tried to make the icing with less sugar, but it ended up being too runny, next time I will cut the butter as well to make a thicker icing. Everyone in my family loved it.

Double Chocolate Biscotti
This was my 2nd time making Biscotti. I added chopped dried cherries instead of the white chocolate chips. They did get a little too dark on the bottom cause my oven runs very hot at the bottom and tends to burn things before it cooks the rest of it (woo for a stove that must be from the 40's or 50's...). I ate them all plain and all by myself. Was a very easy recipe.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary
I made this for my family's Christmas Dinner. None of them had ever had lamb before. When making the marinade I thought the mustard would be too strong, but the finished product wasn't too strong. Instead of roasting it in the oven I seared it off and finished it in the slow cooker. My family also can't stand pink meat so it was far more well done then I like it, but it was still good. They all enjoyed it and I will definitly use this next time I do a lamb roast.
