About this Cook
I'm a 24 year old with a large extended family to cook for.
My favorite things to cook
I love vegetables, all things dairy, bacon goes on everything, and I deep fry more than I should.
My favorite family cooking traditions
First and foremost my favorite foodstuff made by my family are lumpia. My grandmother is half Filipino. She's passed on a tradition of making these filipino "eggrolls" that aren't just delicious but so much fun to make together. They disappear before they hit the table!
My cooking triumphs
I think the hardest thing I've ever attempted was a good cheesecake. I made my own gingersnaps for my crust first. Then made a pumpkin cheesecake that was an instant hit. I think it's what galvanized me as family chef. My quiche has also earned me renown. Best served hot!
My cooking tragedies
My attempt at souffle failed. I've also made some sad "end of the month" casseroles :)

White Chocolate Key Lime Endeavor with Macadamia Crunch
Fantastic! We loved it. Little bit of work, but well worth it.

Lemon Pudding Cake I
I loved this, everyone else liked it. I was surprised by the recipe and how it turned out, and enjoyed it a lot. I like to turn the piece of cake over and spoon more sauce on top. We came away with 9 pieces, it's a small cake but certainly worth making again!

Uncle Mac's Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
yummy! my family and I love these cookies. I learned that you need to leave them on the pan for awhile before moving them to a cooling rack, and they stay hot for longer than some other cookies.
