About this Cook
I started spending serious time in the kitchen when I was 8, and I've been hooked ever since! I am currently studying molecular biology and physics in college and cook for my summer research-mates all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making brownies with my sisters and making Christmas breakfast annually for the entire family.
My cooking triumphs
I guess I'm usually most triumphant about things that I cook for people that originate from me just pooling all the stuff we have and whipping up something. I don't necessarily know what's for dinner when I start but so far it's always ended really well, and deliciously.
My cooking tragedies
Well.. nothing really serious to report here! I did have quite some trouble with my first candies, though. I'm still not very adept at that. Oh, but the first spongecake I made was a disaster! -_-; But I studied what I did incorrectly and even wrote a paper about baking spongecakes for my math class. ^_^ I'm much better at baking them now, and I make my Dad one for his birthday every year.

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies
Went with an additional whole egg and added some more spices - it was soft, but after refrigerating it overnight it worked out well. Delicious.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
I chilled the dough for 24 hours and had no problems rolling the dough. It did get soft once handled but I added more flour and a bit of egg white and chilled it a bit longer and it was fine.

Chocolate Nuggets
In an effort to use up ingredients before I move, I made this recipe. I had to use margarine instead of butter, and I substituted orange extract for the vanilla and white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and pecans for the walnuts. I used the microwave to combine the ingredients rather than the stove. Once the batter is made, let it sit for a few minutes as it really sets up. Also, it's better for them to be slightly undercooked rather than overcooked at all (plus I think this oven I'm using has a higher temperature than it's supposed to). The orange extract was a nice decision, and I'd recommend it. The cookies were chewy, and soon became quite hard. I'm not sure how often I would make them.
