About this Cook
A few years ago I couldn't cook to save my life. Now I have to budget how much I'll spend on ingredients each week!! Cooking and baking has become a form of therapy for me and, I suppose, my friends (who get to eat it) lol.
My favorite things to cook
cakes, cookies, pies, and curries!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner preparation
My cooking triumphs
I was put on the spot to cook a birthday meal and a cake for my friend--I had less than an hour to get everything ready and presentable! Well, I pulled it off with curried mango chicken, rice, and an awesome chocolate cake!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a champagne cake for my birthday but it turned out to be expensive cornbread--bleh!

Pumpkin Cookies III
Goofed on the recipe and added 1 cup of light brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar (I had two windows of recipes open). This turned out to be a happy accident! I substituted 1 cup of softened butter for the shortening and added about 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. These cookies are great with white chocolate chips!

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins II
These muffins tasted great. The only complaint I have is that they were a bit heavy (I prefer a light texture).
