About this Cook
I'm a health-conscious twenty-something doctoral student who's always looking for a great meal on a budget (and limited time)!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and enjoy honing my skills at transforming recipes into something more nutritious and healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Although lots of recipes have been lost over the years, I'm working on recreating the traditional Mennonite recipes I remember my nana making from my childhood. Roll kuchen and watermelon will always remain one of my favourite meals.
My cooking triumphs
Finally being able to make edible pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
While I've improved to edible, light and flaky pie crust remains my nemesis.

Chicken Seasoning Blend
This spice rub has a lovely flavour, but even with 1/3 the salt is way too salty on baked chicken breast! Cut the salt to 1/4 tsp and it would be perfect!

Amish White Bread
Just like the bread I remember making with my grandmother as a child. Absolutely delicious and super easy to make! I didn't follow the recipe exactly; I dumped in a whole package of instant rise yeast instead of measuring (was only making one loaf and didn't want a little left over) and I added the flour a half cup at a time until the consistency was right as I kneaded it, I think I only used 2.5 cups. Amazing recipe and will definitely be making again!

Chocolate Cupcakes
These were perfect! They have a fabulous dark chocolate taste and were super moist, even after spending the night uncovered in the fridge. The only change I made to the recipe was I used closer to 2-3 tsp of vanilla, but I at least double the vanilla in everything! Will definitely be making again! Pair perfectly with peanut butter frosting!
