About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love, love, love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making the best Hungarian goulash ever! Hungarian paprika is essential :)
My cooking triumphs
Honestly, when I learned how to sharpen my own knives properly. It takes more skill than you think, professionals make it look so easy.
My cooking tragedies
My first turkey. I was 20 and I got one with a little popout timer in the breast, it was supposed to tell you when it was done. Well, the stupid thing popped out, I put the turkey on the carving board and proceeded to carve away 'til I saw all the blood pooling at the bottom. Blechhhh!

One Bowl Buttercream Frosting
LOVELY. This is absolutely scrumptious. It's rich, creamy, smooth, so chocolatey and the texture is just amazing. Thanks so much for this easy, easy recipe. I don't make scratch cakes often and I haven't had much luck with frosting recipes and I refuse to use store-bought frosting because I think it's disgusting. I made David's Yellow Cake from this site (excellent!), used this frosting and had not even a crumb left over to take home. Beautiful.

Unbelievably Yummy Chicken Casserole
I HAD to try this recipe. I'm drawn to the ones that have that single weird ingredient that makes you wonder what it would be like. Most of the time they turn out wonderfully and you can tell your friends about your great new discovery. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them. I very rarely give poor reviews because I know people have different tastes but this was just so very....odd. The blending of the soup and this topping was just wrong. It tasted like sweet mushroom soup and started making us nauseous just because the texture and taste weren't adding up! Different, and not in a good way. Sorry.

Classic Shepherd's Pie
This is a nice change from the usual. It's quick, easy and very, very tasty. I followed the recipe to a T, tasting as I went along. I was a little wary of using the whole amount of dijon but it didn't overpower at all. The only change I would make is to use tomato paste instead of the ketchup, as I thought the sweetish tang of the ketchup was a bit much and add a bouillon cube. That's just personal preference, though. All in all, a great meal, thanks :)
