About this Cook
I'm a web designer during the day, and a fantasy illustrator at night. I love to cook and experiment with new dishes in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Romantic dinners for two, Pumpkin-pecan cheesecake, and anything with avocado.

Indian Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup
Nice recipe! The only addition I made was a small can of tomato paste for color and some extra flavor. I also let it simmer for about 20 minutes longer than instructed so it condensed down to a thicker consistency, and served it over jasmine rice. Really tasty.

Royal Icing III
I followed the recipe exactly as shown and was pleased with the result. The icing was relatively easy to apply with a small icing tip, and it became easier as the icing bag warmed up in my hands. It's got a mild papery taste, so it's better used as glue or as a piping decoration on stronger flavored cookies like gingerbread, rather than used like cake frosting.

No Roll Pie Crust I
I had to use up a bunch of veggies on the fly with ingredients I had in stock, so I threw together a squash/zucchini/red pepper pie, and used this crust- it came out PERFECTLY. It was just the right measurements for a good textured crust, and coated the pie dish without being too thin or goopy. Will definitely make this crust again!
