About this Cook
I'm a wife and new mother, and trying to master all the elements of being a domestic engineer, including cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Chili. I feel like I solved the puzzle of the meaning of life every time I make it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Japanese food passed down from my grandma (gyoza, sukiyaki, etc.) and my other grandma's potato salad (a North Dakota requirement)
My cooking triumphs
I recently made homemade calzones, complete with homemade pizza dough. They were excellent! It was the first time I had ever used yeast (making breads intimidated me), but it turned out so well, I'm really looking forward to making homemade bread!
My cooking tragedies
I almost burned the apartment down while trying to broil beef for fajitas. So far I'm 0-2 for broiling. I also found out (too late) that my oven door must be open to broil...it explains a lot. Also, don't try to make crab cakes with imitation crab.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III
Overall, an excellent recipe. Next time I will cut the cinnamon back to 1.5 or 1.75 teaspoons, and add .25 teaspoons of ground nutmeg. Also, I baked these at 365F for 12 minutes (per another commenter).

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
Well, this was delicious, but I found that the 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to be way over the top. Next time I will only add 1/2 cup and/or use less heavy cream. I also only added 1/4 cup of butter. I *do* actually want to taste the tomatoes, you know!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
FINALLY, a tuna casserole recipe worth making from scratch. Next time I will mix at least half (if not more) of the cheese into the white sauce, and possibly omit the celery. Make sure to slightly undercook the pasta, too.
