About this Cook
I am a young person who loves to cook good food. I hate eating the same thing every day. I've experimented with desserts and mostly asian dishes. I love my adopted burmese kitten, as shown in my profile picture ^_^
My favorite things to cook
Vietnamese Chicken Curry with Sweet Potatoes, Egg Rolls with Vermicelli, Cookies, Cakes, Pies and various desserts.

Tiramisu Cheesecake
This recipe is pretty good. The only few changes I would make: Up the amount of liqueur as other users mentioned. I pre-baked the crust about 5-10 minutes. I could not find ladyfingers so I used a mix of vanilla and chocolate cookies. 12 oz package may be TOO much for crust. I used less than that. I also baked this in a water bath (instead of steaming on the lower rack). Also, it probably could do without the flour (or less amount). I would make this again!

2-Step Creamy Chicken and Pasta
I didn't have a pasta/veggie blend, so I knew it would lack seasoning. For seasoning I used onion powder, garlic salt, pepper and chicken boullion seasoning. For the soup, I used cream of mushroom and it turned out tasty and pretty darned easy.
