About this Cook
I'm an aspiring comic artist, learning to eat right. I spend too much time at work (or drawing), so it's hard to find time to make food. Between work and art, I like to knit, play video games, and ride my bike. I live with my two cats, one who will eat just about anything.
My favorite things to cook
When I'm in the mood to cook, I like to cook new and fancy dishes. I enjoy cooking for others most of all (it gives me more of a reason to cook, I guess). Italian baked dishes are always fun. I also tried crepes once. They were good, but I have a ways to go before I can make them the right thickness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is by no means Italian, but that's what I grew up eating. Manicotti, lasagna, tortellini, spaghetti... I love the stuff. We also refer to my dad as "Iron Chef Leftovers." While his creations are not always a triumph, they are still his specialty.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I had a loaf of bread turn out right was a great day for me. It was a honey wheat bread. My first loaf (basic white) was hard as a rock, mostly because I think I mis-measured the flour. My second (brioche) was good at first, but became dry too fast.
My cooking tragedies
In an attempt to be original and useful, I attempted to add some flavor to a basic spaghetti sauce. My roomie had bought some chicken the other day, so I decided to chop the leftovers up and add it to the sauce. Little did I realize it was LEMON chicken. While the sauce wasn't good, it wasn't really bad either. Just... strange...

Strawberry Crepes
Delicious! My only problem was my crepes were too thick and my skillet wasn't as "non-stick" as I thought. But that was the fault of the cook, not the recipe. I'll be making this again.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole
Delicious! Perhaps just a bit too much margarine though.
