About this Cook
I am a teen cook from Ontario, Canada. I am very fond of cooking, and especially love to bake.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts. Of the desserts I prepare, I especially enjoy baking pies, whether they be meal pies or dessert pies. I found the idea of making my own pie crust intimidating at first, but have come to love it and would never dream of buying one again. I am also particularly partial to baking muffins.

French Baguettes
Even though I have a bread machine, I made this bread by hand because I wanted the full experience. This recipe was perfect; I wouldn't change a THING. It yielded two gorgeous and delicious loaves that my family happily polished off within a day. They were very impressed, especially my younger brother who ate nearly an entire loaf on his own. I loved how the egg wash gave the baguettes such a lovely shine on top. Thank you for this amazing recipe which I will undoubtedly be using many times in the future!

Mexican Lasagna II
So, so easy and delicious. Like everyone else, I improvised with what I had on hand. I only had 1 can of beans so that was what I used, plus I added a few cloves of chopped garlic to the seasoned beef and bean mixture for flavour. I topped each beef layer with salsa and the resulting dish was both tasty and fun to prepare. I'll definitely make this again!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
PHENOMENAL CARROT CAKE; both taste and smell are to die for. I followed the recipe exactly but made individual cakes in both regular and mini muffin tins to bring to a party. They were perfectly moist. I topped the cakes with cream cheese icing and they were a hit. I will never use another carrot cake recipe--this one is perfect.
