About this Cook
I'm just a self-taught home chef who is looking to improve on my cooking and baking skills. I'm always on the look-out for a new recipe to try, so feel free to send some my way!
My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything. Even better if it is something that I've never cooked before!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Pumpkin Pies for the holidays! And of course, my mom's Waldorf Salad!
My cooking triumphs
Making my own raviolis completely from scratch and getting it right on the first attempt. This included homemade alfredo sauce too!
My cooking tragedies
Nothing is ever a tragedy. There is always a way to salvage a 'ruined' dish. Unless it's burnt garlic...

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
As someone who doesn't eat veggie burgers regularly, this recipe is super simple and easy to make and goes with a lot of different topping options. We topped ours with a corn salsa, guacamole, onions, tomato, a fried egg, jalapeno-muenster cheese, sriracha garlic chili paste, and sauteed jalapenos. This pairs well with the Quinoa and Black Beans recipe on this site.

Cherry Bomb Chicken
This definitely was a juicy and tasty chicken recipe, I will give the author that. However I think the next time I make this I will lessen the water amount. I felt that the amount of water diluted the other flavors a bit; with three habaneros I feel like there should have been slightly more kick than I received. But all in all this was still really tasty and definitely something I will be making again. This pairs well with something sweet such as the Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe found on this site.

Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash
The author of this recipe states that they have it every year on Thanksgiving, and now I can see why. This is a very hearty and sweet dish that is also very filling and tasty. I do agree with others that this is on the sweeter end of things, however it pairs well with a spicy dish such as the Cherry Bomb Chicken recipe found on this site. I did make this recipe exactly as it is written, but for those of you looking for something a little less sweet I would suggest cutting back on the apple and adding some rice to the stuffing; this should help balance out some of the sweetness without taking too much away.
