About this Cook
Being in college made me a lazy cook surrounded by Ramen and Easy Mac. After my study abroad experience in Germany in 2004 during which I had to cook for myself, I was opened to a whole new world of food possibilities. My "cooking triumph" used to say making healthier ramen. HA! How I've grown...
My favorite things to cook
Stir Fry!! Dump and swish! Also desserts, of course.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potica around Easter time
My cooking triumphs
Actually WANTING to sometimes be in the kitchen
My cooking tragedies
Learning that the plastic cover that came with the Pyrex dish is not in fact oven-safe. Mmmm yummy burning Plastic-fumes.

Ras Malai
I absolutely love this dessert when I go out for Indian food and was so happy to find a recipe I could make at home. Unfortunately, I didn't have the saffron or cardamom on me, as it was a spontaneous decision to make it. The cardamom would have really made it better, but they were still delicious! I made mine with rose water (it says optional, but I say mandatory!) and with Stevia instead of sugar (1 tsp Stevia = 1 cup sugar). Yum!!

The Amazing Swedish Meatball
Definitely cut that salt down!! Or serve with bland noodles or rice. Other than that, very very yummy. Just make sure to rotate them frequently. Mine were a bit under-cooked.
