About this Cook
I am a born again Christian and I have been married for almost 6yrs now and have a 4yr old boy and a 3yr old girl. Since comming to this site a little over a year ago. My cooking has advanced. I am one who gets tired of the same old things for dinner so I love be able to come to Allrecipes and finding something new to make. I love to try new things when having people over and hearing them rave about how good everything is. Then asking for the recipe. Thank you!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook in the slow cooker mainly because I have to small childern and a home to tend to and the less work that I have to do the more time that I can spend with the family. :) Since living in Virgina I have learned how to cook some Perto Rican meals The rice is the best My husband can't get enough
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I started using this website I did not have any cooking traditions, but thanks to this site I have started a few. The ones that were a hit in my family and easy to make are the keepers for me. So I make them about once a month or when ever I get a chance.
My cooking triumphs
I have made some awesome recipes since I have been cooking. I never understood how people could not follow a recipe exact and still have it turn out good or even better. Now I know that it just comes to you in time ant practice and the more cooking you do the more you know what goes good with what. I love it!!
My cooking tragedies
I have had a few of these but none as bad as my first time that I tried to make home made giblet gravy lets just say it tasted like greasy flour. YUK!! I still get picked on for this one. Some ate it anyway despite the tast just because the turkey was dry too.:( But on the brighter side I have made a great juicey turkey since then But bought the giblet gravy. :)

Southwestern Egg Rolls
These where pretty good I followed the recipe except I do not like Hot peppers so I did not add those. I am not sure that I will make this again mainly because it is a very time consuming recipe. Though it looked really nice and colorful. Thank you for the recipe.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I
This was so good I made it for about 20 people and there was only one serving left when it was all said in done. Plus two people asked for the recipe. I did as other here did and added ginger fresh garlic. I also did not have the green pepper and green pepper and pea pods on hand but I did have 2 bags of broccali sitr-fry that all those things plus more. After steaming them with my rice when it was cooking I then chopped them up so they were not that big and bulky. It turned out great I will do this one again. Thank you!
