About this Cook
I just moved to Vancouver in February, and I love it here!! I'm currently studying to be an insurance broker, but I have alot of free time so I've been experimenting with new recipes, as I'm a novice I've been sticking to less complicated recipes but last week I baked my first cake!! The next thing I want to master is Phyllo, mine always goes soggy :-(
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy making East Indian, and mexican food. I'm not a huge fan of asian food, but I do love making Thai Green Curry.
My cooking triumphs
I created my first recipe last week, Blue Cheese Chicken Burgers. I am so happy that I finally have something to contribute to this community that has given me so much!!
My cooking tragedies
Phyllo, it always goes soggy on me! Ooooh and the first time that I tried to make pastry for a pie. I didn't follow a recipe at all, it turned out as a solid mass of...something, it was TERRIBLE!! Yet my friends still ate it!

Lasagna Alfredo
This was great! Instead of using commercial Alfredo sauce I used the recipe from "Fettuccini Alfredo I" and I added some broccoli and sliced mushrooms to the sauce.

Pasta Fagioli Soup II
This recipe was fantastic! I used Italian Sausage and Chorizo instead of Bacon though. And I accidently cooked the pasta too long which thickened the soup quite a bit. So keep and eye on the timer ;-)
