About this Cook
Just an amateur cook that likes to experiment in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook

I love cooking big feasts. I'll forgo a dinner invite for Thanksgiving or Xmas so that I can stay home and cook
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to bake bread and pasta from scratch
My cooking tragedies
Every once in a while I'm off my "A game", I'll be pretty dissappointed in a dish, the roommates usually don't mind though. I'm my worst critic

Creamy Rice Pudding
I've never made rice pudding before, and for some reason I got a craving for it today so I made it on a whim. I just fiished and OMG YUM. Thank you so much for this recipe. it came out better than I'd hoped for my 1st attempt. I dont like raisins, so I followed another users example and omitted them, adding cinnamon and nutmeg. Delish. I will be making this again.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I do soooo love grilled cheese sammiches, and so do my roomies. Their eyes always light up when I tell them I'm making my version. It varies slightly, dependant on what I pick up at the store, but normally it's rye or sourdough bread, cheddar/colby/havarti (sometimes mixing it up), thinly sliced tomatoes, and a bit of mayo, oregano, salt and pepper inside. I've even been known to toss in some black forest ham, or a touch of pastrami. The key is taking your time. Put some love into that grilled cheese, and cook it patiently.

Original Irish Cream
I've made this recipes many times since we all love a splash of Bailey's in our coffee. Tastes just like the real thing with a bit more of a kick.
