About this Cook
I'm from India, I love reading, writing, cooking, and art. Ialso like photography and hiking. I hate recipes that say delicious or tasty in the name and actually taste, well, not delicious. I am constantly looking for a good Horchata recipe...sadly, it isn't that successful. My Spanish teacher made horchata and brought it in for the class to try. It was amazing, but his mother-in-law, who's from Mexico, cooked it wthout any recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Madeleines, doughnuts, fish, and anything with alfredo or tuna...or both! Madeleine recipe below: Makes 24 Need: 2 eggs, 1/2 tsp. vanilla ext., 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, 1 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup flour (all-purp.), 1/4 tsp. baking powd., 1/2 cup melted, cooled butter. Directions: mix flour, vanilla, and eggs in bowl beat together add butter, and zest fold in baking powder and sugar if using nonstick madeleine pan, dont do this: if not, brush pan with butter fill molds with mixture bake ten-twelve minutes, should be golden when ready makes 24 3in madeleines sprinkle with pinch of powdered sugar goes well with drinks enjoy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of Indian food, spicy-spicy spiciness...and if its Indian curry or biriyani or something, it has to be lots of spice for hours, meaning the whole house smells like Indian food smells good in whiffs, but when you're trying to sleep a week after you cooked Indian food, you don't sleep. You wish you were outside. Maybe not a week...haha.
My cooking triumphs
I made parmesan-covered fish fillets once, and my family loved them. I was so proud...unfortunately, they lasted about half an hour. I found the recipe somewhere here...maybe I should look for it.
My cooking tragedies
Biggest tragedy: I was eight, but tuna helper (homemade, but following recipe) turned out all thin and goopy, and sweet. I then dumped salt onit, and nearly died (joking) of ODing on salt. Oops. But I was eight.

One Bowl Brownies
I made these for my mom's birthday, and they were delicious! I love this recipe. Since my mom is allergic to nuts, we made them without any,and they were fine. After adding the flour,the mix got a little doughy, so I added a splash of milk,and it really made them great.
