About this Cook
I'm fresh out of highschool (finally) and attending university in the fall. I'm the youngest out of three children and still living with the parents. I love cooking -- it's one of the only things I'm ACTUALLY good at doing! Other interests include makeup artistry and traveling.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that's quick and easy. I don't really like cooking things that are time consuming. Most of the recipes I choose to make from this site usually take me under two years max. I usually cook Asian cuisine or easy vegetarian meals on a daily basis (I hate dealing with meat). I also have a love for baking -- anything from cookies to cheesecake to pumpkin chai cupcakes! Usually I cook for people; just giving people the satisfaction makes me feel like I've done something right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family cooking traditions? Always use onion and garlic... always!!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I once made minestrone soup (Jamie's Minestrone from this website) with all these great harvest vegetables. I cooked it in our biggest pot since I doubled the recipe and surprisingly, it was all gone within a day -- by only three people!
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy, there's too many to name! I occasionally have a tendency of overcooking things, especially meat. And I also have a problem with cooking dessert bars -- they NEVER EVER come out right!

Moist Garlic Roasted Chicken
Very moist chicken; however, I did have some trouble with the baking time. I did have a larger bird (~5lbs) so after 1.5 hours, I increased the heat to 375F and also opened up the parchment sheet for about an hours time. Amazing. Also used whatever herbs I had on hand. Stuffed it with celery, carrot greens, two heads of garlic, and lots of seasoning. And added some nubs of ghee on top of the bird during the last hour of cooking. Thank you for a great alternative to turkey for this past Canadian thanksgiving! Boyfriend loved it.

Lola's Horchata
Made this using another reviewer's suggestion of halving the sugar (also subbed agave for refined white sugar) and grinding rice and cinnamon sticks beforehand. Best to soak it overnight. Amazing.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake
Not bad, but it needed...something. I added turbinado sugar on top before baking. I think it needs some lemon zest to "brighten" up the flavour a bit. I do like how subtly sweet it is though. Yum! Baked mine for 30min.
