About this Cook
I'm a student home for the summer and experimenting with recipies since I've got a lot of time on my hands. My family loves it...
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts and baked stuffed chicken dishes. Although, I've made some salsas, appetizers, seafood and asian dishes. What I love to eat, I love to cook. I don't like to be stuck at the stove right up to the moment of baked dishes are great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is an excellent cook, and makes excellent Italian staples like lasagna and spaghetti. She's also always made cakes from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
I've been cooking up 5 star recipies and every night I cook it's like "going to a fancy resteraunt!" My first cheesecake (Irish Cream) was a huge hit.
My cooking tragedies
None yet. Have somehow managed to salvage things I mess up...I cut corners and sometimes I pay for it - like forgetting to drain frozen things before adding to a sauce. Not so creamy anymore!

Dad's Pad Thai
I'll give it a five since my family liked it so much. It was not what I expected though...not quite what you'd get as a dish in a resturaunt. still a tasty asian dish though. I omitted one egg and the bean sprouts, added extra red pepper flakes and peanut oil and some chicken. Next time I'll put more cilantro in (a must) and try adding some tamarind. Tasty!

Peppermint Patties
JUST like York patties. Great texture. I added extra peppermint extract...almost a whole teaspoon more. Gave it the perfect strength. Also had a TOUCH of almond extract in it...people like that. Tip: make the patties really small like only an inch when flattened. Better in smaller doses. Also, add paraffin to chocolate for sheen. Freeze after. Best served "frozen" The peppermint mixture WILL NOT FREEZE. So don't bother trying to get it to for easier dipping. Use a slotten spatula for dipping. LOVE THEM

Candied Citrus Peel
Worked great for me. Make sure you take the peels out of the sugar water after the 15 minutes...I waited too long, so they were a bit too gooey. I then chocolate coated them....AN EXCELLENT CANDY. Very well recieved. I have to hide them so they won't disappear so fast!
