About this Cook
Being a broke recent college graduate has definitely made me a better, and more resourceful cook. Whenever I have a nearly-empty pantry, I browse for dishes that I can make with what I have left. I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite things to cook
I am all about homemade sauces at the moment. It's amazing how salty and bland store-bought sauces taste after switching to homemade!
My cooking triumphs
I made Saag Paneer. It wasn't perfect, but I'm still proud that I attempted something as challenging and testy as Indian cooking.

Baked Ziti II
I made this an hour ago, and I am so pleased with how it turned out! Very rich, even though I used fat free ricotta. Okay, full disclosure: I didn't really follow this recipe's measurements, just the cooking instructions. So I used about 3/4 package of pasta, 14 oz of ricotta, and about half a cup of mozzarella. And I made my own sauce. BUT I would have never thought to use an egg, and yet it made a world of difference from my previous baked pasta attempts! Yay!
