About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking Mediterranean, Thai, and Indian dishes, and I also enjoy cooking soups. I love using quality ingredients and lots of spices.
My cooking triumphs
My favorite recipes to make are Indian chick pea curry and Thai green curry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make a layered cake was a disaster. It was a chocolate espresso cake and the recipe wasn't that good to begin with since the espresso taste was entirely overwhelming. And then there were the problems I caused. I made all the layers crack so for Christmas Eve my family ended up with a giant blob of chocolate cake that tasted like a strong cup of coffee. Not good.

Light Oat Bread
The first time I ever made bread I used this recipe and it turned out fantastic despite my inexperience. I've made it twice since then, and it's turned out perfect both times.

Authentic German Bread (Bauernbrot)
I absolutely loved this recipe. I lived in Germany for a year and absolutely fell in love with the bread there. Ever since I've returned to the States, I've been wishing that I could purchase German-style bread, but it's nearly impossible to find. But now i don't have to find it because this recipe tastes so authentic. I do, however, want to share the three things that I did differently with this recipe. First, I used my own super tasty and entirely local sourdough starter so I didn't follow the first part of the recipe about creating a starter. Second, I halved the recipe because it sounded like so much bread. To do this, I had to make an educated guess on how much to use of the sourdough starter I already have. I went with two cups, and it seems to have worked perfectly. Third, I made the dough using the dough cycle of my breadmaker. After the cycle ended, I shaped the bread and let it rise for an additional hour. Even with these changes, the bread turned out amazing and like an authentic loaf of Bauernbrot.

Sourdough Starter IV
This starter worked great, and I had a nice starter after letting it sit for 4 days. I can't wait to let it age and develop even more tasty sourdough flavor!
