About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
one pan dishes, casseroles, pasta, desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me a wonderful saffron sauce! What I most appreciate though is that my parents always cooked fresh, delicious meals and food was never thrown out but refrigerated or put in the freezer.
My cooking triumphs
I just made my first Thanksgiving turkey ever and it was perfectly cooked, I was SO proud, haha.
My cooking tragedies
Bread is hard!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
I almost cringed when I read 'a good basic cookie' in the reviews. This cookie is so complex and delicious I found that rather offensive. I followed the recipe to a T (with the exception of replacing a small part of the chocolate and walnuts with sultana raisins) and they came out pretty much the best cookies I had ever had. They are sweet, with a hint of saltiness, chewy oatmealy goodness, complex walnut flavor and rich chocolate chunks. I did leave them in the oven for an extra 3 minutes (the temperature was running a little low though). I was tempted to put them in even longer because they weren't exactly crispy but I read in the reviews that they keep on baking even after being removed from the oven and my gosh, after they'd cooled down they were perfectly crunchy on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside. Love them!

MMMMM... Brownies
I'm not sure if I reviewed this recipe before but I just had to come and rave about it again! I've made this with very high quality chocolate and this brownie tasted like gooey, chocolatey HEAVEN. It has a fantastic consistency and it literally took me 5 minutes to whip up. This recipe is super quick and delicious. I love it!
