About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was 8. My mom got sick and I had to cook for the family. After that, I just wanted to cook all the time. I cooked for my roomates in college, even making money off items I could make in my dorm. After a while, my food begain to earn praise, which drove me even more. I've been working in restaurants since I was 17, and I now do catering and bakery work, and am in the process of opening my own restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Breads, muffins, and desserts are my favorite. Presentation is a big thing for me, so I strive to make it look even more delicious than it tastes. I love to cook for large groups of's a big ego boost when everyone raves about your food for weeks afterwards.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Those I don't really have...I consider my family to be a tight circle of my friends that I cook for often. I think the best event was a "ghetto" party we had, where we ate all the worst food imaginable, washed down with 40's. Sometimes that's better than a gourmet meal.

Cinnamon Rolls III
Absolutely Fabulous! Thank you! I made them for brunch 2 weeks ago, and not only did everyone fight over the last one, my husband has requested them every weekend since. Cinnabon was an addiction for me, and now I can have them at home, every day! Wouldnt change a thing about the recipe.

Vegetarian Pasties
This recipe was a very good foundation, though I added Veat fake chicken, peas, cumin, and curry to the potato mix and brushed the outside with egg white and sprinkled with garam masala. Tasty with any variation, try adding peas, shredded cheese, chili powder or shallots to the filling.
