About this Cook
My name is Maya, I’m 18 years old and live in Israel. I started cooking when I was very young, mainly due to the fact that my mother worked late, and preferred to make my own meals rather then defrosting ready-to-eat meals. Since then my love to cooking has only grown.
My favorite things to cook
I love anything that has to due with carbs- pastas, sandwiches, baking, and more. And also, any thing that used to have a mother: :) chicken, beef, seafood etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All types of pastas and pizzas from my Italian side, and I prefer to leave the Hungarian cooking to my grandmother..
My cooking triumphs
My well-packed toasts and seafood pastas.
My cooking tragedies
A very weird dish with fake shrimps (forgot the name..) and a creamed tomato sauce. I thought it came out horrible, even though my friends loved it. Oh, and a seafood paella that came out very, very spicy- too spicy! Had to add more rice to make it eatable.

Raspberry Iced Tea
I made so many changes, that I'm not even sure it's the same recipe! Anyway, these changes where made for 7 servings (so I can make 2 liters, metric system) 7 regular tea bags, 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries (a few blueberries also found their way inside), 4 teaspoons honey (I hate overly sweet taste, and always order my ice tea unsweetened...) and no lemonade mix, just about a teaspoon of lemon juice. I brought the water to boil, cooked the everything together for 3 min (the raspberries were defrosted prior) and then let it sit for another 4. YUM YUM YUM!!!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
Amazing! I made a few changes according to other reviewers: added 1/4 cup rolled oats, dried the beans, squeezed out the fluids and freezed them a night before cooking. Also, I used only 1/2 tsp cumin because I don't really like it, didn't have any hot sauce so skipped it, added 1 shredded carrot (drained) and doubled the garlic. I did not use a food processor but a brown mixer, which left chunks of the black beans- I think this was a good call because the burger did not feel like a ball of refried beans, like other reviewers said.. Next time I'm probably going to triple the recipe and freeze them to have great veggie burgers on hand..!

Grandma Johnson's Scones
I'm not rating this recipe as it came out and I want to leave the avarage, because I did not have Cream of Tartar, and had to use the lemon thing from the common subtitutions section- It came out awful, I just want to warn others not to do what I did!
