About this Cook
I'm a vegetarian who is making strides to become vegan. I also have a meat-eating (and meat-loving) live-in significant other. One more detail to keep it interesting: I'm a rotten, terrible cook.
My favorite things to cook
Midwestern home cooking. Crockpot, casseroles, pot pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Norwegian pastries and desserts, specifically lefse with Crisco instead of lard.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmother retired her secret molasses and ginger cookies when I made them the first time. Now they're MY secret cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Every meal, every day. 2/3 of my Kraft Mac and Cheese Dinners come out wrong. Last week, I blew up the coffeemachine and burned down the toaster. That's how bad it is. Please help.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
AllRecipes.com has taught me everything I needed to know about boiling eggs, baking potatoes, and, yes, frying up a grilled cheese sandwich. These things aren't always obvious to people not raised by housewives, and I needed a trusted source to teach me the basics of cooking. Hooray for AllRecipes.com. Boo to snarky food-snob commenters!

Classic Waffles
Taste as is was bland, honestly had 0 flavor. I also had real troubles getting them to cook crisply on the outsides without burning them. I altered the recipe a few times along the way to try and fix the issues but had no good results. Am now looking for a recipe that works - as is.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus
Please use measurable terms in your recipes! I cooked the potatoes with raw onion for 30 minutes covered, then added asparagus for 5 covered and 5 uncovered. The asparagus was perfect but the potatoes were still not fully cooked. I may have cut my "chunks" too big? Cooked for another 7 or so minutes and they were good to go, but the asparagus was a little overdone. Tasty flavors, I cut the seasonings way down (garlic, too).
