About this Cook
I love to cook and eat food. I am a few months away from turning 30. I have a baby girl. I studied Journalism. I enjoy reading/writing reviews.(I post reviews on Yelp).
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti, baked chicken, stuffed cabbages, lasagna, pot roast with potatoes, slow cooked beans/red beans rice. Sweets: Brownies, cakes, glazes, breads, cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Clam Chowder. 'Fudgy' chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. Tiramisu. Vegetable Lasagna.. list goes on.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 14 I attempted to make a roux. The flour was burned. The mixture came out sticky and hard. Burned flour tastes disgusting! At 15 I made beef stew, having no idea what to do I mixed a few different vegetables together in a pot of water. Then I added raw beef chunks, expecting it to cook. Thought I made a great stew. Gave our pet dog some and he threw it up. Pretty Tragic.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs
I made this recipe last night and I have no complaints. I used dry parsley flakes, I did not have fresh. I used 93% lean ground beef and 85% lean ground pork. I followed the recipe exactly. Lip smacking delicious! I will definitely use this recipe again

Banana Muffins II
DELICIOUS!! I am going to need to invest in a mini muffin pan because this is going to be my Go To Muffin recipe. Versatile,very easy, not messy, perfect! I followed the suggestions of the other reviewers, I added a tsp of vanilla & cinnamon to the banana mixture before folding into the dry mixture in. 30 min seems a little too long (I pulled the muffins out after 27 min. They were a nice golden brown) I can imagine adding cinnamon and apples to the batter, blueberries, zucchini - possibilities are endless. My 27 month old daughter ate 2 muffins immediately! Next time I'll use applesauce instead of butter. Wonderful recipe, thank you for sharing!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies
A great recipe. I did do some of my own teaks: I added 1/2 tsp of bourbon vanilla to the egg yolks, sugar, butter mixture. I used strawberry preserves, which I ran through my Ninja before adding to the cookie. Advice: Let the butter soften at room temp before using and do not work the dough too much once its mixed or else it will crumble. I baked the cookies for 9 min, they still looked raw on the top but then darkened a little once removed from the oven. I sprinkled powdered sugar over the top. I got 26 cookies from this recipe, next time I will double. Very quick & easy recipe!
