About this Cook
Last year I didn't cook at all. I decided I wanted to start cooking meals for my boyfriend and I once in a while. Now I've been cooking about once a week and everything has been a hit so far. Who new I could cook.
My favorite things to cook
My favourite dishes that I have made have been my vegetarian chili, baked ravioli casserole, pulled chicken and mozzarella calzones, and fiesta rice. My boyfriend and I probably most often make pizzas.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph was when my boyfriend told me I'm a really good cook, restaurant quality. I always thought I couldn't cook (and I think he thought the same), until I found all these tasty recipes on and kicked him out of the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
I was baking one year in February. A cake for the family birthdays and cupcakes for valentines day. When measuring the milk, I beleive it called for 1 cup (maybe 2). I couldn't find our regular measuring cup, but I found something else. I measured and poured the milk into the cake mix, then I realized this cup i was using was a litre, not a cup. I tried scooping out excess milk, but finally just had to add the second mix I had. Turned out having a cherry chip/chocolate cake that was a light brown color. The kitchen was in bad condition after the whole ordeal. There was chocolate batter everywhere. I was also doing this in a rush so it was stressful. I've never been one for baking. Cooking seems to be my thing!

Easy Mouthwatering Baked Ravioli
This was a big hit. I used ground chicken and got a bag of tex mex instead of getting both mozzarella and cheddar. I think I just added all of my ingredients (all of the chicken, all of the ravioli and all of the cheese... just eyeball it. you can't really mess it up). I made this for four people and ended up with enough for seconds and leftovers.

Becca's Bruschetta
Little tip if you don't use parmesan. I kept waiting for the cheese to melt, until my boyfriend told me that feta doesn't melt. It got a bit dried out in my opinion but my sister showed up and said it was the best bruschetta shes ever had.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breasts with Herbed Goat Cheese
I used bacon instead of Prosciutto simply because I didn't know if I'd be able to find it at the grocery store. I also dropped the dates because I wasn't sure if my boyfriend would like that. I should have wrapped it tighter or used a couple of strips of bacon because the filling gushed through. I found the chicken dry.
