About this Cook
I'm a food lover who tries to tweak recipes in order to keep the flavor and lower the fat content. I am a lover of light butter. :) I also play the violin as a hobby.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta dishes and soups.
My cooking triumphs
Getting an apple pie perfect on the first try.
My cooking tragedies
I yet to get a perfectly medium rare ribeye or rib roast. I once added too much chicken broth to a soup and it ruined the batch for me.

Ma Po Tofu
A previous reviewer was right. While edible this is not true mapo tofu. I'll keep looking for a mapo tofu recipe.

Cranberry Sauce I
Fantastic! Don't be afraid of the portion size, I halved the recipe since I'm cooking for two and I worry it's not enough! Only change I made is using 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar.
