About this Cook
I'm a full-time young professional, part-time grad student, and I volunteer in the few hours left in the week. This leaves me very little time to cook. I'm a picky eater. I'm cheap. Gotta pay off those student loans! In case you were wondering, I don't like salt, pepper (I always disregard the "salt and pepper to taste"), seafood, or dill (I think the dill may be tied to deep-rooted issues).
My favorite things to cook
I like to think I'm perfecting the art of cooking good food quickly. Sometimes this involves yelling (and even physical fights) if someone else enters my tiny kitchen, but I'm forgiven in the end after a good meal! I love to find news things to cook from Of course, I often look for ways to make them faster.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There is always some homemade pasta sauce in the fridge or freezer.
My cooking triumphs
Every meal is a cooking triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Well, I was recently baking some cupcakes for a friend's birthday last weekend and I forgot to add the sugar. I had a taste of some batter after filling the paper cups, so I was able to start from scratch before baking and serving them.

Nothing special. Not my favorite squash...

Spaghetti Squash I
I thought this was delicious. I did take another reviewer's suggestion and added some mushrooms and white wine. Would definitely make again.

Zucchini Brownies
I thought this was fairly good, but I did make some changes: no icing, only 1 cup sugar, and whole wheat flour. No one suspected anything and everyone enjoyed. I did use an overgrown zucchini from Mom's garden, which I recommend for moisture. Next time I would try to cut back on the oil and maybe add some applesauce.
