With a Dab of...

I've recently been introduced to the wonderful world of coupons.  I've known of them for quite a while, but was turned off from them by my more... obsessed acquaintances.  As I now have access to the coupon sections of my local newspaper, via both my work and having a relative who works in… MORE

This is my favourite time of the year. Warm enough to grill, and still cool enough to enjoy it.  Our apartment complex just opened up the pool, which makes it even better! Now, all I need is some good ol' charcoal briquettes and I'm good to go! I love to grill anything that will stay on the… MORE

My family always seems to serve food when we have company over. It doesn't matter whether they were invited or just showed up. It doesn't matter if they're just stopping by for a minute or two, staying the evening, or just dropping something off; they all are offered a drink and a snack. We… MORE

About Me
I'm a full time university student who loves the simple things in life. Good food, good company, and good entertainment. I'm easy to please, and easily entertained as well!
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are Asian dishes. I also like making my own pasta sauces, and even made a tomato-based sauce that was sweet. I just like experimenting in general!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooks, and cooks, and cooks. I grew up learning that food is company's best friend, and so food was always available to offer to guests. For birthdays we make a Chocolate cake that has a secret ingredient that is always a hit. Kielbasa is also a staple 'comfort' food, always served with vinegar.
My cooking triumphs
When my older brother developed an allergy to soy products, I helped adapt many recipes to become soy-free so he could eat them. It was a lot harder than I first thought it would be - especially the more I discovered how many products have some type of soy in them!
My cooking tragedies
My most memorable cooking experience has to be the first time I made apple pie. The instructor said to add 'as much brown sugar as you want.' I took that a bit too literally (horrid sweet tooth, I admit!) and ended up making what is now called "Apple Soup in a Pie Crust."
