Mint Chocolate Chip Cake
Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream Frosting
About this Cook
I'm 23 years old and a senior biology student at Penn State. I love pets. My hobbies include cooking, crosswords, knitting, and exercise.
My favorite things to cook
Nacho chicken rice wraps, chicken taco soup, stuffed peppers, and ravioli lasagna are some of my favorite dishes to prepare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unlike a lot of young women, I've always been good in the kitchen. I attribute that to watching my mom cook for years.
My cooking triumphs
I was particularly proud of the cute AND delicious cake I baked for my boyfriend's most recent birthday. Typically my things taste great but can look pretty sloppy.
My cooking tragedies
I have been lucky so far. I have not messed anything up so badly I would call it a "tragedy". I burn the occasional cupcake and I have forgotten to grease a cake pan.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
I could probably sell this cake illegally in a dark alley somewhere. Outrageously, ridiculously, sinfully good. I baked it for 45 minutes, then checked it and it was done. Better to bake for less time, remember- you can always stick it back in the oven, but if it's overbaked, there's nothing you can do.

Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp
These were seriously amazing. I did add more lime and cut the Cajun seasoning in half. I also don't have a grill so I sauteed them over the stove. Going to make these over and over and over.

Tortilla and Bean Soup
I was feeling adventurous and used shrimp instead of chicken. I just threw it in frozen with all the other ingredients and simmered for 30 minutes. This is really, really good. I made it to take to lunch all week and I expect it will only get better as the week goes on.
