About this Cook
I'm a second year university student. I live in a dorm with five other girls. Needless to say, sometimes we eat well, sometimes not so much; it usually involves chocolate though!
My favorite things to cook
New things each time, pretty much.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, it was meat/potatoes/corn every night... not a favorite of mine anymore. I started learning how to cook after getting tired of my dad's hamburger helper. However, I do like that I rarely ate beef growing up, my father hunts so it was always venison, elk, caribou, moose, you name it! I didn't appreciate it much then, but now I realise what a treat it was. Also, growing up in a small seaside town will forever make me a restraunt seafood snob.
My cooking triumphs
Sushi, some great maranades, chicken cordon bleu, roasts
My cooking tragedies
It involved olives and asparagus tips in a mustard sauce. Don't ask.

Jumpin' Chickpeas
Meh :-S Not really my bag, I should have tried making hummus like some other reviewers suggested.

Curried Chicken Soup with Chickpeas and Cauliflower
I left out the cilantro because I'm not a fan, but otherwise this is a tasty soup. I put it through the blender for my friend had her wisdom teeth removed and she thought it was fantastic. This soup is even better the next day : )

Molasses Peanut Butter Crinkles
These are some of the chewiest, tastiest, most delicious cookies I've ever made! I accidentally doubled the ginger and cloves, but it's such a small amount anyways that it didn't seem like a mistake (they were delicious!) I also used about 1/8 to 1/4 cup more molasses than I should have, because that stuff is difficult to work with! I have a new respect for the phrase "as slow as molasses," it's on par with the phrase "herding cats" now for the slow people in my life now. But I digress. These cookies rock!
