About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, chicken or beef. Anything with mushrooms, balsamic vinegar, or wine. But if I can make it look pretty and taste good, I'll make it.
My cooking triumphs
I've finally started to get past measuring and timing everything exactly. I can eyeball ingredients and even tweek a recipe to fit my taste or what I have on hand. It's very encouraging.
My cooking tragedies
I was roasting a chicken in a glass baking dish (should've use a metal one) using a recipe that called for some water in the bottom of the dish. I said to add more water if some is cooked away, so I did. As soon as the water hit the dish, it shattered and spilt all over the inside of my oven! Luckily the chicken was on a rack as well, so I just finished cooking it and cleaned up the next day. :)

Poor Man's Shepherd's Pie
I didn't have green onions so I caramelized a whole white onion and then toasted some almond slices (sat both aside) then browned the meat and added all the other ingredients plus the onion and almonds and a can of corn. It was pretty tasty.

Pfeffernusse Cookies
These were a big hit! And recipe made alot of cookies. I didn't count but it was 4 cookie sheets worth. I used white pepper instead of black and accidently used 1.5 tsp of ginger (I picked up the wrong bottle). They turned out great!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
I'm glad I went to buy the ground cloves for this recipe. It gives the cookies and little kick. The icing is great too and looks wonderful.
