Well, starting my first cooking blog with telling a bit about myself and my philosophy of food. I like to cook various types of foods and feel proficient enough to handle and create new recipes, as long as I have a way to cook/prepare them. I feel cooking truly is both science and art in it's… MORE

About this Cook
I love to cook (just not clean, lol). I enjoy a good recipe and get the occasional urge to do some serious cooking. I'm what one may call artsy. I do all sorts of arts and crafts and work as a cosmetologist as my regular job.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking, whether it be cakes, cookies or bread. Most of the time I tend to make sweets and spicy dishes. I also enjoy making a good stew or soup. Lately I've been expanding to cooking some Asian cuisines, especially since I've been trying to eat healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well for me is when my father makes his Chili for the 4th of July. I love it when he used beef chunks instead of ground, as the way he makes it, it comes out so tender. There's another more vegan dish my mother used to make for me growing up, but considering she sort of just made it up, we just call it "hot stuff" cause it was very spicy.
My cooking triumphs
Hmm, anything that turns out good or others love it, I'd consider that a triumph. Otherwise, getting it done right the first time is also great, too :)
My cooking tragedies
I'd say when I was in my pre-teens... I was experimenting with ways to cook eggs in the microwave. Well, syrup didn't go well with the usual additives to egg I found. Another one I remembered, I was cooking fish for dinner...it turned out really good until I decided to get fancy and add some red wine I gotten before..(was homemade sweet wine and let's put it this way, it was better with the fish than on it). I was sad I ran out of that wine ;-;

Cioppino
This is such an awesome recipe, I cooked this for a friend of mine's family and they raved about it! I didn't go exactly by the recipe, but simply got all the ingredients together and just added more or less on some of things. I liked mussels but never though I'd eat clams from the shell but did and loved it! I also loved how this wasn't such a tomato-y broth as the only kind of tomato-y broth with seafood I like is Manhattan Clam chowder. Was sooo delicious and is a definite keeper!

Honey White Bread
The bread had a beautiful coloring and texture. I did like one of the reviewers suggested and used an egg and also skip the Vit. C, since I didn't have any anyways, and replaced the ground ginger with a pinch of Sassafras. I also like using goat milk in place of regular cow milk, since I find it gives my breads more flavor. My mother loved it and ate most of it lol. The flavor was certainly interesting, may used it as a sort of base recipe for other ideas I have in mind.
