About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My husband loves pasta, I love anything healthy and wholesome. I love baking. I don't think I can live without spices. My favorite meals to cook are probably classic roast suppers: i.e. turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I always love cooking together. She taught me to make bread from scratch, to bake, and more. I love doing that stuff with her - those are my favorite days!

Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine
This was a very good recipe. I made a few alterations based on some suggestions: 1) I added 1 tbsp minced onion and 1 clove of garlic, minced to the butter and sauteed until tender. 2) Instead of adding the flour after to the milk/butter, I made a roux by adding the flour to the butter and gradually adding the milk. However, I found that doing it this way caused it to became too thick, and I had to add extra milk. 3) While still yummy, I found the Parmesan flavor slightly overpowering. We love Parmesan, but I was expecting more of a smoked salmon/spinach/caper flavor, and found that they came second to the cheesy flavor. Next time I would cut the Parmesan in 1/2. Overall, very delicious!

Olive Oil Roasted Eggplant with Lemon
I found this recipe to be not very good at all. The taste of the olive oil was overpowering and it just wasn't the right flavor for the eggplant.

Japanese Chicken Wings
When I made these for the first time, I forgot to dip them in the egg/flour mixutre. They still turned out delicious. My girlfriend who has also made them before commented that they are better without the egg/flour mixture. I also added some sesame seeds to the sauce. All in all, super yummy!
