About this Cook
I'm currently a Graduate Student at Palo Alto University studying for my Masters in Counseling. I already have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology & Social Action. I mainly like cooking and baking as a pastime/hobby but realize these are skills I really should have.
My favorite things to cook
Crepes, baked goods, pancakes, and waffles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has an excellent cheesecake recipe that she has promised to teach me. She has this sort of "advanced training" class for it that is basically a must. Just knowing what goes into the recipe isn't enough, seriously! You have to get the right brands of cream cheese and everything else. Everyone loves this cheesecake and begs my mom to make it almost everyday. My mom also has me help her with baking cookies every year during the Winter and she bakes all kinds of things that I sometimes help her with as well.
My cooking triumphs
I first learned how to make crepes in cooking class in high school. I was asked to come to the front of the class and try my hand at making them, I came in during the middle of the quarter because I was transferred into the class, without having first heard how to do it I pretty much did something the teacher didn't expect. As I was pouring the batter into the pan I lifted the pan up and moved the pan around so that the batter shifted all around perfectly. It was fun watching the shock play over the teachers face and her asking me where I learned that. I've watched crepe vendors make crepes and thought it would be easier to use a different method then the one they usually do, which is to spread the batter around with a flat cup.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started learning how to flip eggs in a pan they always fell apart and I ended up making scrambled eggs instead. I've gotten better over the years.

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme
Perfect blend of spices with maple syrup! Made two pies and brought one to the office where I work and my co-workers absolutely LOVED it! One of them mentioned that it would probably go well with a glass of wine so I'll have to try that at some point. I actually made the filling completely to the details of this recipe. Got a sugar pumpkin and made the puree myself and I was stoked to see that we had all the spices already in stock in our spice cabinet at home, as well as real maple syrup. I doubled the recipe so I still have pie filling left over to make more pies for Thanksgiving since we have several family members coming over.

Pumpkin Fudge
Absolutely phenomenal!!! I brought these to a potluck at my work and got several compliments ranging from "now that's what pumpkin fudge should taste like" to "its like taking a bite out of a pumpkin pie"! Be careful with how much of the white chocolate chips you use, otherwise it tastes a bit caky.
