About this Cook
I love to cook! Making food and baking food is a hobby that I've enjoyed fiercely for a very long time.
My favorite things to cook
BREAD! One of the most fascinating things about making bread is being able to watch it raise and then finally taking out two swelling golden loafs from the oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Measurements don't have to be perfect, the real genius is all in the good feelings mixed in.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are everything from blueberry pies made from fresh blueberries from down the road. I made the crust into stars completed with a big crescent moon in the middle. It came out lovely and was perfect for the space party I attended.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was a pot pie that had chicken added to it that had been soaked in a salt brine for wayyyy too long. No matter how much peeled potatoes I added it still tasted like someone had soaked the whole thing in the ocean!

121 Whipped Cream
Super delicious and much better tasting than store bought. To be warned it does make a lot more whipped cream than you'd think, plus after whipping you should consider refrigerating it for a bit after to firm it up a bit after working it so much if it begins to melt.

Baklava
I made this and it came out good yet it seemed to be missing a spice, I used ghee as suggested in one of the comments to improve the chances of it not being soggy but it didn't seem to help any. I increased the sauce 1 1/2 times as some previous comments said the amount suggested would make too dry of a dessert. I loved it and so did all my friends, however, again, it seemed to be missing a spice.
