About this Cook
I'm a recent college grad finally taking the time to learn how to cook. Looking forward to a life devoid of instant mac and cheese or frozen chicken nuggets.
My favorite things to cook
Doesn't everyone love to bake? And i'm also IN LOVE WITH TOFU. So many possibilities, so yummy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves Italian pasta. At least once a week I whip up some penne or rigatoni and round it off with a rich red sauce and a side of spicy sausage or meatballs.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triumph is that i haven't killed anyone yet with my abominations. haha.
My cooking tragedies
White chocolate raspberry cheesecake. The crust TOTALLY stuck to the bottom of the pan. I brought it to Thanksgiving dinner and everyone was trying to be nice and eat it anyway. The consistency was terrible too. It didn't cut into slices, just blobs. It was a huge disappointment. Oh well.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
Pressing the kiss into the cookie directly after taking it out of the oven somehow softens the kiss *just* enough so that it doesn't melt, but remains soft and creamy even after the cookie has cooled. I would eat these all day, every day if i could. PERFECTION.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
I suspect my difficulties with this recipe were due to my inexperience and because i incorporated suggestions from other reviewers. The cheesecake looked pretty but my two problems were 1) My oreo crumb crust wasn't attached to my cheesecake and it couldn't even be scraped off the pan and 2) My white chocolate half and half mixture didn't mix in well and when i poured the cheesecake into the pan i found most of it blobed in the bottom of my mixer's bowl. All and all i still think i'm going to try this recipe again. I want to see if I can get it right.

Mini muffin pan + mini muffin liners = MINI PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!!! Drizzle warm chocolate into a thin layer on the bottom, place a small ball of the peanut butter mixture(leaving space between it and the liner all around the sides) and drizzle more chocolate over the ball until it is fully encased! The chocolate set up quickly and beautifully. I'm bringing them to a Thanksgiving event so I will update with pictures and how well they went over. If they taste anything like they look and smell they'll be a hit!
