About this Cook
A teenager who loves being in the kitchen, cooking dinner after a hard day of studying is the perfect way to relax!
My favorite things to cook
Of course, the chocolate chip cookies!!!! But... I am a really big fan of Italian, Greek and Asian foods. I love making fancy pasta sauces, or attempting to spice up an old family favorite, such as my lemon-garlic broccoli casserol ( my personal favourite!!)
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chocolate-dipped lemon Madeleines
My cooking tragedies
I once made a cake for a big family thanksgiving dinner that caught my eye off the cover of a magazine: it was a chocolate pumpkin cake iced with orange cream-cheese icing and topped with an artisitically dripped chocolate glaze. All was going well until i put the glaze on... my beautiful cake turned into an orange and brown mess! "My... what a lovely...cake..." everyone said at the dinner... although it may not have looked very pretty, it did taste terrific!

Snowballs
I lost my recipe for Snowballs, which I make every year for Christmas, and while these were not as good as the ones I've made in the past, they are pretty good! I would suggest making them smaller rather than larger in size, they are not as doughy this way and you get more icing sugar per mouthful of cookie this way: definitley delicious. Also, as some of the users have said in the other reviews, rolling them (or as I did, filling a bowl with icing sugar and shaking the cookies in the bowl for a less dense coating) in the icing sugar while hot, then letting them cool and sifting new icing sugar over them makes them taste soooo good!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs
I thought this recipe was really easy and quick to make, and tasted great as well. One suggestion I would make is to add less ground ginger: 3 tbsp is a bit too strong for my taste, it left a kind of spicy, weird after taste.

Simple Scones
I had a craving for hot scones with butter and jam, so I whipped these up one rainy afternoon, and my sister and I shared them over cups of tea. Delicious! Also, they were extremely easy to make... took about 20 minutes prep time, 15 minutes bake time and we were eating them within the hour! Instead of making them triangular shaped, I took round cookie cutters and cut them into circles... looks very pretty and they can fit into the toaster once they get cold and need a heating up! One tip I do have is make sure you get them out of the oven in time: I left mine in a little too long... they were golden brown, but a little crispier than I like.
