About this Cook
Recent graduate of the University of Central Florida, now working for Merrill Lynch.
My favorite things to cook
Anything southern; anything from my grandmother's cookbooks. I especially love making all kinds of desserts because I have a sweet tooth in the worst way! I also enjoy mediterranean foods as I spent over 3 years working in a mediterranean cafe in central Florida. Finally have my tabbouleh, babaganouj, and hummus recipes perfected!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Entertaining church members at home with from scratch homemade vanilla ice cream and saucepan brownies from secret family recipes (sorry, I won't be sharing these!)
My cooking triumphs
I was complimented on my pineapple-coconut cake by my grandmother (it's her recipe and her favorite cake)
My cooking tragedies
I misread the measuring cup and added too little sugar to my saucepan brownies and inadvertently created a bland chocolate sheet cake!

Dulce de Leche
I just finished this recipe, and it is AMAZING!! I am a caramel FREAK (Yes, I know Dulce isn't the same, but it may as well be to my taste buds!), and this is my first time trying to make anything like this. I followed the previous reviewer's variation: 4 Cups 2% milk, 1 Cup sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp baking soda. I didn't have a problem with the sugar caramelizing over medium heat... I'm thinking it is probably because I have 'gormet' copper bottomed stainless steel pots. The whole process only took me an hour from measuring my milk to ending up with my dulce de leche topping for the cheesecake that's in my oven. Tastes awesome!!!

Easy Lemon Cookies
Excellent recipe... I'm going to try different flavors of cake mix coupled with different flavors of extract for more variety!

Veal Stew
I always love cooking this recipe whenever I'm in the mood for some gourmet italian food. Whenever I can't find veal stew meat, I substitute lamb and it turns out great, but not as tender as the veal. I tend to serve this stew over herb and garlic pastaroni.
