About this Cook
I am an architectural technologist by day, beginner chef by night. Having recently graduated from university, I love that I can now afford to cook healthy meals instead of just cracking open a box of mac & cheese!
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with Asian cooking ingredients.. my new favorite ingredient is sesame oil. Yum! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't do turkey at christmas, we do a meet fondue with different meat and veggies. My mom's beer batter is soo good.. That reminds me, i have to get her recipie!
My cooking triumphs
Just had the in-laws over for dinner, I made hot and sour soup. You know it's good when everyone is dabbing their brows from the heat.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to cook a meal that I saw on the cooking channel. It was pork chops cooked in a mustard / hard cider mixture. When I added the cider, the resulting smell almost made me sick. I'm guessing I had the wrong type of cider because the smell was awful. Luckily I hadn't put the pork chops in the sauce yet, so all was not lost.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
I made this last Halloween and I cannot wait to make it again! It was so good we finished it in one day. I'm definitely getting more than one pumpkin this Halloween so I can make even more of these seeds!

Chocolate Cherry Cake I
This was a hit with my guests. I made mini cupcakes by baking at 325 degrees F for 10 minutes. When spooning mixture, try to get one cherry in each cupcake! yum!

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise
This is really good! To get more of an orange taste, I add orange rind to the mixture. Try baking them in mini-muffin pans @350 for 25 min. If you do, sprinkle some paprika on top of them for toasted appearance. I also like to spice things up with some cayenne in the mayo. This one's a keeper!
