About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Usually sweet-baked stuff, considering I've a huge sweet-tooth. My family do, too. So I bake a lot of cakes, puddings, pies, etc. And, simple pastas and sandwiches for me and my boyfriend for quick lunch. Also, anything with canned tuna, of which I crave. Salad, pasta, and melts.
My cooking tragedies
My ex-boyfriend was a major health-freak and was in a strict program to build his muscles. I wanted to surprise him by cooking him a healthy meal. I made him vegetable stir-fry, without salt and artificial seasoning of course, and, since he's a big fan of cheesecake, healthy-cheesecake, made out of a mix of cream cheese and tofu-yes, tofu-without sugar. Both of the recipes use ginger as the seasoning. My sisters joined in for the meal and they said the stir-fry was OK since it was meant to be a healthy dish after all, although the taste of the ginger was a tad-bit too strong. But, you could've imagine their face when they started to taste the cheesecake. My boyfriend had trouble gulping down his first-bite, but one of my sister actually spit it back to the plate!! The tofu and ginger taste was awfully striking and it tasted nowhere near cheesecake. I stopped making super-healthy food ever since, and solemnly swore under the greatness of salt, seasoning, fat, and sugar.

Grilled Camembert Sandwich
Terribly incredibly yummy!! Twisted sandwich I really dig. Even my mom wolfed down mine after had one-bit of it, made me have to whip-up another. Will try to lay on smoked chicked next time. The idea seems delish!

Autumn Cheesecake
It tastes DIVINE! I made this for my boyfriend surprise birthday party and took it to campus. I got raving reviews from all my friends and they literally couldn't stay away from the cake box wolfing down every crumb of the cake, which made me had to put the activity to a halt because I wanted to bring back some pieces for bf's mom and granny. I doubled the recipe and used a 24-cm springform pan, but apparently the crust needs more butter to hold the cracker crumbs stronger. I baked it for 70 minutes in water-bath and cooled it down in the oven for 1 hour. I used Granny Smith, the tartness scales down the sweetness from sugar. Since it's pretty hard for me to find pecans here, I subbed it with cashews. I forgot to throw-in the nut in the topping but I made a streusel topping NOELC suggested in this recipe which brings the whole taste of cheesecake to another level! Thanks Stephanie for making my bf's surprise birthday a blast with the cake!! I owe you big time!

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich
My boyfriend detests tomatoes, but he LOVES this tomato sandwich! He was reluctant at first, knowing that I was trying to stuff him with tomatoes, but I did force him to try, and was he surprised! I brushed the breads before toasting them with the leftover dressing from the "Portobello Sandwich" recipe from this website. He liked the sandwich so much he kept asking for second bites (he was driving). Though he tried to reason with me that the this would tastes better with meat and how he disapproved the tangy taste of the tomato slices, I knew from his eyes he was lying! He just couldn't cope with the fact that he eventually likes tomatoes!
