About this Cook
I am a mother of beautiful twin boys, homemaker, and recently went back to school. I love cooking, baking, nature, arts...I don't know what else to say...just busy busy busy! Any comments? plz write!:
My favorite things to cook
I love baking desserts mostly,but also love freestyle cooking...meaning to just improvise with what I have on hand.Usually,I'm pretty good at it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love that every Sunday, all the family gets together. We each bring some food as in a potluck dinner. We all sit and ejoy the food together. It is a great time to catch up with everyone, and try new foods. Usually, I am the one who brings desserts. I often bring more than one thing, since I love baking, I sometimes get carried away!
My cooking triumphs
When I made my very first decorated cake for my sister's engagement party,and it turned out great!And also my delicious samosa's that people seem to not get enough of!hehe :$
My cooking tragedies
hmmm...well, that was a very long time ago, when I was still very much a beginner and I had made a beautiful looking cake, So fluffy and golden, but when we tasted it,I found out I had mistakenly made it with salt instead of sugar!:'(

Chococonut Chip Cookies
Really good cookies! I decreased the flour just a touch in each cup and followed the rest exactly. They turned out chewy and delicious! Even people who say they usually HATE coconut, said there's something about these cookies that makes them crave them!! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

The Best Lemon Bars
I added a bit of lemon extract for flavour, and followed the rest exactly. I didn't expect such rave reviews for these! I rarely make things with fruit in them, let alone sour fruits for the family! I had lemons I had to use up, so I made these anyway. I am so glad I did! They were so good that many people at the family gathering could not keep their hands off them, even the kids! Thanks for sharing this recipe, truly a keeper!

Broiler Icing
Made chocolate cupcakes not realizing that I didn't have enough icing sugar to make frosting, so I found this recipe and made it instead. Omitted the nuts. I was a bit worried, as it doesn't have that creamy factor that frosting has, but let me tell you, I'm glad I tried it! Everyone loved it. Some did think it was a bit sweet, although I decreased the sugar a bit, but other than that, I was pleasantly surprised that it was such a hit. Especially that it looked more like melted cheese on top, instead of coconut!It is a nice change from the regular frosting, and quite original of a technique! Thanks for sharing, it really helped me out! :)
