"Looks like frog eggs" :)
They're just a little burnt!
About this Cook
I am a broke college student in Florida who loves to try out new recipes in my tiny little apartment kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Ever since I was small, making bread has been a secret pleasure of mine. I'm not really good at it, but it feels so homey and cozy just to try.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is famous for making the most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. My mom used to make one every time I had a bad day, and I consider them to be the ultimate comfort food.
My cooking triumphs
Publishing a recipe on this website was pretty exciting for me, actually!
My cooking tragedies
Apart from the countless dishes that I've charred to a crisp, I once misread a recipe and used three whole teaspoons of cayenne pepper on four small servings of chicken. My taste buds still haven't forgiven me :) And then there was the time I spent several hours preparing and baking a gorgeous quiche, only to drop the entire thing all over the floor...I could go on forever telling scary kitchen tales!

David's Yellow Cake
Adapted this recipe for a banana split cupcake with smashing success - it took all kinds of abuse from me: cutting down to just 3 servings (which made 12 mini cupcakes for me), half whole wheat flour (pulsed in a blender to be more fine), almond extract instead of vanilla, half Stevia sweetener, 1/4 cup mashed banana added in, and me throwing in the eggs before the sugar in the butter creaming step! Tasted divine alone or with strawberry jam piped in the center and Oreo-marshmallow creme frosting, chocolate sprinkles and a cherry on top :)

Maui Onion Dressing
Uh-mazing. I used cantaloupe seeds that I salvaged from breakfast and toasted at 250 degrees...not sure whether they're the same, though :/ Definitely cut the oil and could have cut the sugar (although my sweet tooth didn't complain!) Otherwise, I honestly didn't want to change the flavor at all, at all, at all!!

Hamburger Cookies
Rave reviews! I dispensed with the chocolate frosting and used the same store-bought tube of red "ketchup" for all pasting purposes. Well, except for the sesame seeds: for those I just poured a bit of corn syrup on a plate and spun the top wafer in it - worked great; no paintbrush needed. And go for the Grasshopper cookies...better taste, for sure.
