About Me

My photo
hey! My name is Kyle Cook. Recently me and my girlfriend Stephanie have had to be parted while she's working in Austria, and Me here in New york city. We thought it would be fun to keep a blog of the different meals we make since when we are together our lives are heavily influenced by cooking. Steffi is going pescaterian and gluten free right now. So she should be posting some really cool stuff. We will be posting various different recipes we have done on our own or together, as well and restaurants we have tried. This is the closest we can get to cooking together and keep that part of us alive and well. Hope you enjoy it. - k+s

I need to start making breakfast again. Most of the time it's just coffee or a smoothie if I'm lucky to be able to afford it. 

Late But Christmas Treats

I know this is Kinda late but these are some of these really awesome things my mother makes for christmas. She's the queen of christmas and really into tradition. We are almost in our mid twenties and it still feels like we are kids. She really has a special talent for doing that kind of stuff. She literally prepares all year for it. And then she hosts it for over 40 people two different nights. It's like a three day celebration. But she always makes a feast. Most of the time it's similar to our thanksgiving meal with more turkeys and duck, and pork.

One of my favorite parts is Breakfast. She makes bacon, scrambled eggs, and french toast on challah bread. So french toast with a syrup walnut butter she pre-makes for topping it.

Also she makes the best deserts to!

This is the first time she made this Cranberry Compote cheese cake. I think there's another flavor maybe walnut. But it was incredible. the best cheesecake she's ever made. And she's known for them. The cranberries are a large part of her winter cooking. These were reduced down in sugar and syrup. super sweet!

This is a little more delicate desert. It's chocolate moose with marscapone whipped cream and frozen sugar coated cranberries. It's super pretty and pretty light for desert. Great!

Some more coming soon!

I have been starting to cook more, because I got some new kitchen pans and gadgets.
