About this Cook
I'm a student at University holding a part-time job, so I don't always have time to cook when I want to. When vacation comes though, I love to wake up and bake cookies or bread, and then get ready to make a big dinner for my boyfriend and my family.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a big fan of different Asian cuisines, but I think my favourite thing to cook is Italian. I also love to make breakfast foods, as well as cookies and other desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't hold many traditions, but my dad is wonderful at the grill - he once continued barbecuing even through our house being hit by lightning! So a big barbecue dinner is always fun here.
My cooking triumphs
I think my biggest triumphs occur when I create recipes from scratch (like a red pepper bisque that I made) or learn how to make something by reading several different recipes and combining them all in a way that I like.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make zucchini bread, I put way too much batter in the bread pan, and of course, halfway through baking, the top was cooked, but there was batter falling out the side. I took ended up cutting off the top, and scooping some of the batter into muffin tins to make muffins and cutting off some of the unbaked part of the bread. We liked it, but my mum wondered why there were only crust pieces of bread.

Spinach Lasagna III
I've made this a couple times now, and it always goes over well! I sauteed the spinach with the onions and mushrooms, but just added it later. After it cools, I add the ricotta and egg into the pan without using an electric mixer. I also use fresh lasagna noodles, so there's no need to boil them. Also, I find that I like this better with a rose sauce than with regular tomato sauce, so I make a simple bechamel and then add a can of pasta sauce to it. I find this matches the flavour of spinach better, but isn't as rich as an alfredo-based sauce.

Zucchini Brownies
These were great! I do think that they are a bit cake-like, but definitely a good brownie too. I don't know if anyone would, but don't make the mistake I did: the first time I made these, I used the coarse shredder (as though I was making zucchini bread) and I encountered the dry crusty top problem. The second time, I used the fine shredder (not the grater) and my one large zucchini was a gloppy mess, but my batter was perfect. So good!

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
I really liked this muffin! It's not very sweet, so I wouldn't make this if you prefer a lighter, cakelike muffin, but it has very good flavour for being pretty healthy. I used between 1/4 and 1/2 a cup of applesauce instead of oil to cut calories, and it still tasted good. I sprayed my muffin pan well with cooking spray and skipped the liners, then filled almost to the top - no problem getting them out, and they rose nicely. I also mixed about a tablespoon each of sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled it on top before baking for a little extra crusty flavour on top. Very tasty!
