About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Would have to be the recipes that have been handed down to me from my grandmother. It just makes me feel good to know that I am continuing a tradition that she started so long ago. I have learned so much about cooking from her and knowing that I will always have her recipes makes me happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Is Thanksgiving, I roasted my first turkey by myself only a few years ago, And if I do say so myself it was darn good and juicy! I covet making Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners because I enjoy bringing the whole family together over foods we all enjoy and share fond memories of.
My cooking triumphs
My latest cooking triump is finally finding a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is perfect.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to name really. I only recently figured out pie crust after many failed attempts. I get distracted very easily and am the queen of burning things when I use the broiler.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
yummy! Here is what I did. I sauted the chicken and then put it aside while I made the sauce and then let it reduce for 10-15 minutes before adding the chicken back in. If the sauce doesn't thickin up for you I would use some cornstarch. I used two large cloves of garlic and some pickled ginger slices cut minced up and it was wonderful. Def will be making again.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
Great recipe. I love these! Getting the scooping down is the hardest thing. Try and leave a 1/4 of an inch around the skin to give these some stability. I always like to bake 1 additional potato to add to the filling so there is enough and in case something happens to one of the the potato skins.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
yummy dip! yucky color, which only really seemed to bother me. I boiled 2 large chicken breasts then shredded them. Next time I may chop them up instead. Used half and half blue cheese and ranch. Franks red hot is my favorite hot sauce so I would recommend it. After baking does get a greasy layer on top just blotted off with paper towel and tossed back in the oven for 5 minutes. Used celery and tortilla chips to dip.
