About this Cook
I am in school now> I love to exercise. I'm apart of my school's track and cross country team. When I am not juggling school work and track practice, I love to search for new recipes or think of ideas that I can try and experiment with.
My favorite things to cook
I love to fried dumlpings, Jamaican Festivals, chicken, ground turkey meat with spaghetti or any noodles, Mac and cheese, salads, pancakes, french toast, fruit salads, french crepes, rice (occasionally), patty crust, coco bread, eggs and turkey bacon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Carribean foods all from dumplings, to soups, to curry/jerk chicken and rice.
My cooking triumphs
The latest is the imfamous Apple Pie (Apple Pie by Grandma Ople). I added some things to that mix and it was lovely. Also I'm known for my banana pancakes, fried dumplings and omelettes.
My cooking tragedies
The very very first thing I ever baked was an oatmeal cake. What had happen was I did not take my time and read the ingredients throughly. When it said to add one(1) TEASPOON of salt, I added one(1) CUP of SALT. And then to top it off, it said to add a 1/2 TEASPOON of baking soda and I put a HALF CUP!!! The cake did smell really nice when it was baking in the oven because I did not screw the other ingredients, but smell can be diceiving. When my mother and I took the cake out, it looked really "ashy" and crispy. And knowing that it was my first time baking, she tried to make me feel better and said " It doesn't look too bad... Let's get a taste!" Oh my goodness, all the kindness went out the door when she said " I'm sorry, I can't eat this. My blood pressure will go up." We couldn't stop laughing the rest of the day. But I will say one more thing. I made that same cake for the second time and got IT down to the "T". See everyone, reading brings you far.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
For those who are first timers or whose pies come out runny here's a tip. When boiling the sugar/starch mixture, make sure that you simmer the filling for at least (3) three minutes if your using flour, and at least one (1) minute if your using tapioca or cornstarch. This is to thicken the filling so after your pie is done, you won't find that it is leaking. Make sure that when you're boiling it, it is not watery. Also, make sure that you allow your pie to cool after it's done baking, from experience, if you wrap it up right away in foil or what have you then the crust is going to come out soggy and the filling won't set right, who would want that to happen. Here's a link from this site that mentions most of what I said to help you out with any pie problems. Enjoy
