About this Cook
I'm a 2nd year University student studying Biotechnology & Chartered Accountancy, and getting placed in a suite (bedrooms + kitchen + private bathroom) during 1st year was the best thing that ever happened to me! My roommates and I cooked and baked all year - floormates came to know us for it and would always pop by on weekends to see what was in the oven. Cookies, brownies and cakes never, ever lasted in our place!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - cookies, cakes, pies, squares, you name it! I have a couple favourite recipes I use all the time, but I'm also always up for trying something new, and it'll just depend on what's in my cupboard that day!
My cooking triumphs
I would say that most recently, my cooking triumph would have to be my "All American Apple Pie". I was a little apprehensive about the pie, but it turned out SO much better than I expected, and everybody loved it. I'm especially proud of making the pie crust by myself. I also really enjoyed making "Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars" and those were a hit with my roommates too.
My cooking tragedies
Uncooked chicken in my pasta, forgetting about the curdling effects of adding citrus to cream soup in an attempt to make lemony cream sauce, trying to help a roommate replicate a recipe and it turning out tasting like baking soda - I've had my fair share of cooking failures! But I just try again!

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins
Great flavour, but not as moist as I was hoping they'd be, but that may be because I didn't use enough fresh fruit. I'll try more next time, and to leave them in the oven for slightly less time.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops
I made some of the modifications suggested by reviewers, leaving out the milk and doing a double coat of breading with flour (coat with flour, dip in egg then in bread crumbs, and repeat). I also added garlic powder and salt to the egg mixture. I really liked the way the breading turned out, though I found the pork chop itself was a little dry (though that may have been because my chops were sliced thin). Next time I'll reduce the cooking time slightly and see if I like it better!

Country Quiche
Quite delicious! I made a couple of modifications: used less bacon and onion, added some leftover rosemary ham deli slices, cut up into small pieces, as well as a handful of spinach, chopped (as much as I could add to the filling once I'd already poured everything into the pie dish). I also increased the amount of milk to about 2/3 cup. The quiche came out extremely flavourful and filling!
