About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cooking doesn't come easy, but I love baking! I make great cookies and brownies. Cupcakes are fun to share. I want to tackle cutouts and bread next.
My cooking triumphs
Baking yummy cookies in a small, super old, leaky oven that required turning the pan halfway through for evenness.
My cooking tragedies
I learned the hard way that humidity really affects baking; chocolate chip cookies looked like batter slime. Gross.

Edamame Bean Salad
Made it exactly to recipe, smoked salt and all. It lacked "kick", so I added a little more of each spice and some diced jalapeno. Still a bit flat, but a good base. Held up well in fridge. Will try again with suggestions to add a grain, but it's not a favorite. Very lovely presentation however - colorful and bright.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna
The words "vegetable lasagna" have also struck fear in my stomach, but this, this is amazing. I am no chef so it's not often I fix this, but we love it, and leftovers don't always make it to the next day. I halve the recipe since there are only two of us, and have experimented with different types of noodles, and have messed up the ingredients a couple of is always delicious and not an ounce goes uneaten.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Followed user comments and altered ingredients - used softened butter, 1c mashed bananas, and added 1 tsp baking powder. Didn't have walnuts but did add chocolate chips (around 1/2 cup, coated in flour). Lowered cooking temp to 325 and at exactly 75 minutes it was aromatic perfection. Nice and dense and moist. Looking forward to the next batch for sure.
