About this Cook
Hmmm...I'm 19. I attend Penn State University (WE ARE!) and I love every moment of it. As far as my kitchen activities go, I've been cooking since I was old enough to be a tag-along to my father in the kitchen. I love to cook, but I have a special place in my heart for all things sweet. I love to try out new cake, cookie and pie recipes, and I usually test my experiments out on my friends. I'm also well into volunteer work, and I usually supply a lot of bake sale fundraisers.
My favorite things to cook
My health is a major concern of mine, so cooking wholesome, nutrient-rich foods is something I strive for. However, the occasional indulgence is mandatory--you only live once, right?
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father and I always cook together. Even though my parents are split up now, I'm closer than ever with my Dad. I always hang out in the kitchen while he's cooking, he's an amazing chef, it's truly remarkable the things he can create. I'm working to achieve that level of creativity.
My cooking triumphs
Introducing my family to meat replacements veggie burgers, tofu, seitan. Also, the day my Nonna let me look at her recipe book is one that I'll never forget. Her panzanella, biscotti and mushroom pizza are to die for!
My cooking tragedies
I was in a pinch for fresh garlic one time that I made spaghetti squash, so I used the powder. Well, the top popped off, and the whole contents dumped onto my dinner. What a lesson to learn! Fresh is ALWAYS best!

Healthy Garden Salad
Wow, this salad was SO yummy!!! I eliminated the tomatoes and subbed diced red pepper, and I used balsamic vinegar. Also, I used a teaspoon of brown sugar--it was a hit! I'll probably bring it to our Thanksgiving celebration!

Black and White Cookies I
Amazing--these cookies were EXACTLY like the ones I remember getting as a kid! I did reduce the butter to 3/4 cup, I used Splenda sugar blend and also used Egg Beaters. Seriously, I didn't miss the calories or fat. I've been looking for a good recipe, and I've found it =]
