About this Cook
Home-grown Alaskan who enjoys cooking, but loves baking!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies, muffins, breads... But as far as real foods go, I like to make grilled salmon, stir-fry veggies, throw-everything-in soups, and hearty salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Malaysian Chicken Curry
My cooking triumphs
Managing my own little cafe overlooking Bishop's Beach in Homer. I managed, cooked, baked, served, cleaned, etc. Our menu included Malaysian Chicken Curry, Tofu Vegetable Curry, Wheat Bread (served in a flower pot), Bagel Sandwiches, Muffins, Cookies, Brownies, Ice Cream, Bubble Tea, and Espresso Drinks.
My cooking tragedies
Sure I've burnt plenty of things and mixed clashing flavors, but seems like there's always something you can do to make it at least semi-decent.

Lemon Cupcakes
Yummie cupcakes. If you can ignore the copious amounts of butter/sugar, the taste is delicious. I added a bit too much extra lemon, and it was a bit tangier than I was hoping for, but still delicious. Frosting was nice, but not necessary because the cake was flavorful enough!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
So yummie! I used a bit less sugar (about 1.5 cups), and added dried cranberries with the apples. So moist, and delicious. Will make again.

Amazingly Good Eggnog
Yuuum. As it was my first attempt at making homemade eggnog, I was quite pleased. Like others, I cut the rum down to about half, one cup was plenty strong for us. Very rich and smooth!
