About this Cook
I'm just a foodstuff going through an identity crisis, desperately cooking and baking my fellow foodstuffs so that I can prove to myself as well as everyone else that I am a real boy after all.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, namely rotini and ravioli (gotta love those r's). Cakes, cupcakes, muffins, cookies (especially sugar), etc. Anything with a taste - decadent or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pasta on Sundays, fried meatballs and garlic bread, escarole salad with a pitcher of ice-cold lemon water on the side. Christmas cookies for my grandfather, any-other-time cookies for my beloved friends and family.
My cooking triumphs
I've made cute rainbow-colored cupcakes, currently working on a Jack Skellington-themed devil's food cake. None others as of yet.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a vanilla cake so far from light and fluffy that you needed a steak knife just to cut it.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Very good. I added vanilla in there as well as brown sugar for the crumb topping and they came out absolutely wonderful. My mother told me it was the best muffin she's had in her life, and I agree with her completely. Thanks!

Easy Sugar Cookies
Very easy, very delicious. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe to the letter and brought a few dozen to school. I came home with none. Tonight, I added just a little bit extra flour, threw in some red food dye (for Valentine's Day) and rolled them in sugar before baking. Thanks for a quality recipe - it's the first one I've saved! (p.s they taste great, Happy Valentine's! or Joyeuse Saint Valentin, I learned that in French today, hehe)
