About this Cook
1,000 characters can't pin me down or sum me up.
My favorite things to cook
I used to love making anything on the stove top, but now I am really into baking!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family (not myself) never use recipes when they want to cook things. This would be fine if they had any idea of what would taste good, but the last time my sister made pizza creamed corn got into the crust, and squash was used as a topping.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 13 I planned (and executed) Thanksgiving dinner alone. I made the food for my whole family, and I must say, I still consider it one of the better meals that I have ever had.
My cooking tragedies
I don't know if I could call anything I have done yet a tragedy, the mistakes I have made so far are small enough to be called learning experiences.

Carrot Cake
I did not have coconut or walnuts available, so I put in extra carrots to make up the difference. I am sure it would have been incredible without the poor cook's substitution, but even without this was a killer recipe. The cake is amazingly sweet and moist, and I think that a lot of the credit is due to the pineapple. This is not just the best carrot cake I have ever eaten, but it is the best cake period.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Really solid cookies. They did not fall apart like some molasses cookies recipes. Very nice.

Valentino's Pizza Crust
That was the best pizza crust I have ever had. I loved it so much that I made it two days in a row!
