About this Cook
I'm a Food Science student, currently working on incorporation of Pulse Flours (ie. Beans, Peas and Lentils) into baked goods. I LOVE to cook, which got me interested in the science behind cooking. Though I've been a member for a very long time now, I really haven't included myself in the allrecipes community, but I use the recipes and tips RELIGIOUSLY. It's my first stop for recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Baked good: Cakes, Cookies, Muffins, Breads, Pitas (SUPER easy- Peppy's Pita Bread is the BEST), Pastry Dough, Pastries, Pies. Fish (Salmon, Arctic Char, Pickerel), Chicken, Pork Tenderloin and Pork Chops. I'm definitely a sucker for baked goods though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken A La King- the quickest, tastiest comfort food on the face of the earth. Great use for leftovers too! Vegetarian Traditional Borscht- My dad and I make this once a year in about 3 or 4 huge containers and have it for the whole year. Delish. Christmas Fruitcake- My grandma used to make this every year until she passed on. So I took on the tradition with a light recipe of my own.
My cooking triumphs
Pea Flour Pita's. 100% one of the best days ever. And my key lime pie; I get anyone I know going down to Florida to bring me key-lime juice back.
My cooking tragedies
Muffins WERE the bane of my existence- I tried to make them super low fat; they LOOKED delish, but the outside was rubber and the inside collapsed. WHAT NOW?! Thank god for science and being able to make super-healthy muffins without the waste of food.

Pizza Crust I
Wonderfully sweet; I used whole wheat flour. I don't have a bread maker, but used a food processer with dough blade. Fantastic!
