About this Cook
My parents, both meat eaters, told my vegetarian self that I could either make my own food or eat what they made. Needless to say, I actually cook now and am slowly (But surely) getting better at it.
My favorite things to cook
When I disregard my health? Cookies, cookies, cookies! When I think about my health? Indian food, pasta dishes, Japanese food, and other neat things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Half of my family is Japanese, so I eat my fair share of Japanese food. However, it's safe to say that this is a challenge as little of it's veg. I'm working on it.
My cooking triumphs
Baking my first batch of chocolate chip cookies on my own.
My cooking tragedies
Making pretzels so BAD that even the dog wouldn't eat them.

Chewy Chocolate Cookies I
These are, in short, amazing. I have a hard time stopping my family members from eating them all fresh out of the oven which is really something. My only suggestion would be to take these right off the cookie sheet 1 to 2 minutes after they've cooled-or you'll have to deal with them being stuck to the sheet!

Quick Brownbag Burritos
Instead of using salsa, I used a can of diced tomatoes. I also nixed the chili powder in exchange for a teaspoon of cayenne-yum!
