About this Cook
I am a mature student in university, and I love to cook when I'm not studying.
My favorite things to cook
I love sweets, but I've gotta watch my waist. I like cooking things in my slow-cooker-- there are so many things you can make apart from roast beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any, but my mother makes amazing Indian food.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't really had any triumphs. I guess the turkey I cooked for Christmas dinner last year? It was my first time ever making a turkey. It didn't make anyone sick, and we all had more than one serving.
My cooking tragedies
When I was eleven years old, I wanted to make microwave fudge for my mother. I used Ovaltine instead of cocoa. Yuck! It was hard enough to break teeth.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets
I made this recipe for Christmas Eve dinner today, and it was great! We didn't have all the ingredients, so I made a few substitutions (red onion instead of sweet onion and brown sugar instead of white sugar). I did not bother putting the potatoes, onions, and olive oil mixture in a Ziploc bag. I just dumped it in the same large bowl I used for the beets and mixed everything with my hands. Anyway, it complemented the turkey and other sides perfectly-- thanks for this wonderful recipe!

German Apple Cake I
This cake is so amazing. I have made it a couple of times now. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. It came out great, and my coworkers gobbled it all up. The second time, I was all out of white sugar, so I substituted it for brown sugar. It was awesome! I baked it in two 8-inch cake pans for about 25 minutes, so that I could have one cake for myself. :-)

Onesy-Twosy Cookies
Best peanut butter cookie recipe on this site, and I've tried a lot of them! I didn't have the shortening and salted nuts, so I used butter and chunky natural peanut butter. These cookies were rather flat, but they were so yummy that I didn't care. I used salted butter (and the exact amount of salt called for), so the cookies weren't incredibly sweet. But that's good! Update: I subbed semisweet chocolate chips for the chopped nuts upon making this recipe again. Amazing!
