About this Cook
I am a biology nerd and love cats.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking sweets Sunday and taking them to work Monday to avoid eating more than enough to see if it's a good recipe. My co workers gobble them up and complain that I'm making them fat but if I don't bring anything in for a few weeks they ask where the goodies are. For myself I like all kinds of foods from all over the world except anything with curry powder because I don't like turmeric or fenugreek seeds. I keep meaning to make my own curry powder without either of those ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No one else in my family likes to cook much or is good at it except an aunt a few thousand miles away.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate peanut butter mousse towers- took several days. They were a pain but gorgeous and delicious.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried chocolate mousse in high school I did something wrong because it never set. I let it sit in the refrigerator for 3 days continuing to hope, but it was still pourable.

Glazed Almond Bundt Cake
I made this yesterday and took it into work today. It was completely gone by 2:00 and two people demanded the recipe. I used confectioners sugar in the glaze as granulated would be grainy (unless maybe it would be cooked to dissolve it). The glaze was very runny though, next time I'll probably start with 1-2 Tbsp milk and then add more if needed. That would probably make the almonds stick better to the cake, as is they just run down the sides with the glaze. I might try this with pecans or walnuts too. Yum!

Pecan Cardamom Bar Cookies
I made these for my cardamom loving mom and she loved them. I had a few before giving them to her and I loved them too.

Gingerbread Waffles
These are great with real maple syrup but if you're going to eat them plain you may want to add a little sweetener. I used Ener-G egg replacer and non hydrogenated margerine instead of butter to make them vegan.
