About this Cook
I recently got into cooking once I became close to a man that could eat the entire house clean! It gave me the opportunity to try out new recipes, and is a new hobby of mine that I consider an "art." Most of my other hobbies (horseback riding, motorcycling, hiking, playing with my dogs) are outdoorsy activities, so cooking is nice for me to do when I want to do something active in the quiet of my own house.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking desserts, but also enjoy ethnic dishes. I like anything difficult and different, so I can challenge myself and say I really did it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A big favorite of our family is beef stroganoff and stir fry. Additionally, we always have pork and saurerkraut on New Years. I'm not sure why, it was just something my father always stated was a tradition!
My cooking triumphs
There were two first's for me: my first homemade cheesecake and my first pie. Both ended up a HUGE success, tasted great, and looked bakery quality. I was so proud!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any HUGE tragedies, just things came out differently than I expected. I seem to have problems getting the sauce/frosting consistancies the thickness I'd like, but that comes with practice.

No Bake Camping Cookies
The best thing about these is that they are quick and easy! I wanted a no-bake cookie, but I didn't have peanut butter, like most of the recipes called for, so I went with this recipe. I left out the coffee and added just a tad of honey. Filling and yummy!

Stir-Fried Chicken With Pineapple and Peppers
Delicious and easy to make! I used fresh pineapple, red onions, and red peppers...colorful end result! I increased the sauce and mixed it all together with asian bean threads. Also added a little brown sugar in the end to cut the saltiness of the soy and give it a nice mix of flavors. Excellent!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VII
Overall a pretty good recipe. Easy to make without a mixer, cooks fast, and isn't too overpoweringly sweet. I did them as bars, but have not tried dropping them as cookies and probably would use a different recipe if I make oatmeal cookies, but as bars, they are good.
