About this Cook
I'm Leanne, a 30 y/o Azorean-Portuguese gal currently attendng a gorgeous University near Napa. Have a Scottie-Border Collie Terrier mix named Piper and I love the beach, live music, chocolate, classic cars, Ancient/Medieval Studies, gardening, and camping. :)
My favorite things to cook
All types! My favorite items to make are California Rolls (Japanese) and New England Clam Chowder, though I do make a variety of other dishes as well. See my Recipe box for my personally submitted recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of Portuguese recipes passed down from my Grandmother. My mother is also a cook in her own right and had a cooking column in a large local newspaper for many years. Cooking traditions are very important to me; the older the better!
My cooking triumphs
Any time someone loves my food, I feel triumphant. :)
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much any time I have too much time on my hands or too many ingredients and no recipe, I tend to go overboard with experimentation. Sometimes it's actually edible! Haha

Oven BBQ
Sauce never thickened, so I added a thickening agent (pre-blended cornstarch and some of the broth) and it worked like a charm. Thanks!

October Apple Pie
A great twist on an old favorite! Having no caramel squares on hand, I use caramel Torani syrup and just cut the white sugar by 50%. Worked like a charm. Thanks!

Spicy Pumpkin Pie II
I think regular pumpkin pie can be very dull, so this lively version was definitely tasty!
