With several health concerns, I've decided that one step to regaining my health is to change my eating habits. I have an allergy to animal products (dairy, goat milk, etc.) and am unable to digest meat well, so I figured one of the ways I can help myself is to eliminate them both from my… MORE

I've recently been introduced to the wonderful world of coupons.  I've known of them for quite a while, but was turned off from them by my more... obsessed acquaintances.  As I now have access to the coupon sections of my local newspaper, via both my work and having a relative who works in… MORE

My family teases me a lot about how I 'lack' taste buds. They have good reason, because I often wonder if I have them myself.  Aside from spiciness and sourness, I can't tell how much salt, sugar, or 'bitter' is in my meals. My mum had a bad shock one morning when I made lemonade.  What tasted… MORE

I didn't often eat breakfast, as I never had time to cook something more than a piece of bread most mornings. Having lived a schedule that started at 3am and ran to midnight, I didn't have much time for cooking in general.  Having a strong sense of how important this meal is, I had to figure… MORE

I've been a writer for several years, a professional writer for the last couple, and I have found that my biggest pet peeve is reviews.  Not the reviews themselves, no, but the way that many write them. I have seen it here on this site, and it gives a false impression of a recipe to others.… MORE

Memorial Day holds many meanings; honoring and remembering those who've passed on, barbecuing, swimming, "Summer," etc. It's the official turning point for many to say "It's summer now!" For me, since I have no family graves nearby to go visit I often just burn some incense and remember them… MORE

This is my favourite time of the year. Warm enough to grill, and still cool enough to enjoy it.  Our apartment complex just opened up the pool, which makes it even better! Now, all I need is some good ol' charcoal briquettes and I'm good to go! I love to grill anything that will stay on the… MORE

Okay, this is a recipe-that-isn't-a-recipe, in the sense of being more of a guideline than an actual step-by-step instructions. This recipe is a template to making any type of muffin you can dream of! I found it in a book called the Tightwad Gazette II by Amy Dacyczyn, which is actually a… MORE

While flipping through a book my mother had on her shelf I came across a recipe for muffins. This was no ordinary, cookie-cutter recipe though; it was extremely versatile and adaptable to make any flavour of muffin I desired. I want applesauce muffins? Okay, I can do that. Cranberry muffins… MORE

When I wake up for the day, I have no desire to eat. It will take hours before my body decides that it's time to get something in my stomach, if at all. This is a problem for me, as I have a hard enough time eating to begin with and cannot afford to skip meals. Thus, I started looking into… MORE

About Me
I'm a full time university student who loves the simple things in life. Good food, good company, and good entertainment. I'm easy to please, and easily entertained as well!
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are Asian dishes. I also like making my own pasta sauces, and even made a tomato-based sauce that was sweet. I just like experimenting in general!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooks, and cooks, and cooks. I grew up learning that food is company's best friend, and so food was always available to offer to guests. For birthdays we make a Chocolate cake that has a secret ingredient that is always a hit. Kielbasa is also a staple 'comfort' food, always served with vinegar.
My cooking triumphs
When my older brother developed an allergy to soy products, I helped adapt many recipes to become soy-free so he could eat them. It was a lot harder than I first thought it would be - especially the more I discovered how many products have some type of soy in them!
My cooking tragedies
My most memorable cooking experience has to be the first time I made apple pie. The instructor said to add 'as much brown sugar as you want.' I took that a bit too literally (horrid sweet tooth, I admit!) and ended up making what is now called "Apple Soup in a Pie Crust."
