About this Cook
I have lived here in the South for pretty much my whole life, and it's a big part of who I am. (Go USC Gamecocks!!!!) I absolutely love to try new things, there's pretty much nothing I won't try at least once. I have a twin sister who likes to cook. I love to cook, and just bring something new to the table each time. I love learning to cook traditional recipes from my family. Besides being a foodie, I'm also a big alternative, emo, and indie rock fan and I pretty much love music in general, from listening to writing it to playing it on the piano.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, anything goes. There's been few things that I've really hated doing when it comes to cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad has a couple killer recipes that he made up and have become quite famous among friends. He always makes them for special occasions. Among them are his white seafood lasagna, Chinese rice, and stuffed shells. But everything my dad makes is delicious, and he's like an inspiration to me.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate cake, pasta dishes, pan-seared rainbow trout.
My cooking tragedies
A chicken pot pie. I tried to make the pastry myself, and I used wheat flour. Enough said. It was just wrong.

Lime Sherbet Punch
This was very, very good. The combination was excellent, and the lemon-lime slices add a nice touch. I would probably use a little less pineapple juice next time so the taste won't be quite so strong, though.

Chocolate Sheet Cake II
This cake was very moist, and had a great texture. Only, my mind was somewhere else while I was putting it together so I accidentally grabbed the dark cocoa powder instead of the regular. As a result, it came out much darker and not as sweet, but still had a good fudgy flavor. Someone asked me if it was supposed to be a brownie cake, and I was like, "sure, that's what it is." I frosted it with chocolate buttercream, and I used a 13x9 pan, and it was just enough, it was a success. It probably tastes better with regular cocoa, but that was my mistake. Overall very good!

Chocolate Frosting II
I think this frosting had an amazing flavor, and it's very basic and versatile. I used it to frost a chocolate sheet cake, and it was great. Like a lot of other reviewers, I did have to add more milk to give a more smooth consistency so it would be easier to work with and not crumble my cake. Don't be afraid to use this, no matter what you're baking. This frosting can easily be adjusted to your purpose be it a layer cake or brownies, just add the milk and sugar gradually until you have the desired texture. Achieving it is not hard, and you can always let it chill, which helped me.
