About this Cook
I live in a wonderful apartment with my fiance, our sweet border collie mix, and our two naughty cats
My favorite things to cook
I love using my wok! It is so so easy and a snap to clean. I especially like to cook Kung Pao Chicken from this website with my wok. I love to use the grill...healthy, easy, and virtually no clean up.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Maybe this is more of a favorite family eating tradition...we would have "egg bake" every Christmas morning. Now that I am out on my own, I still continue to eat this every Christmas morning with those I love. It's just a nice comforting memory I have of growing up and being just as excited for presents as I was for the egg bake.
My cooking triumphs
Definitely stuffed mushrooms. I love cooking for the men in my life. I can't quite decide if men are pleased easier than women or not? But it's good to know that the men I love also love me and my cooking.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Perfection! I have made these for the past 3 years during Christmas and always give them away. Everyone thinks they are perfectly moist and sweet (but not overtly sweet since I do decorate the cookies with buttercream icing!) I find that the perfect cooking time (in my oven) is 7 minutes, as opposed to the 8, so my tip is to set your oven timer for at least 1 minute before the noted cooking time and check in on your cookies. Each oven is different. Enjoy!

John's Pimento Cheese Spread
My mom makes her pimento cheese just like this...uses light mayo occasionally. The consistency is just like I remembered when she made it...perfect! I added a few shots of (Louisiana) hot sauce for a little kick. Yum!

Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs
My boyfriend who is not a bit fan of onions HAS to have them on these hot dogs. In fact, he doesn't even like hot dogs...but he requests these all the time...he even makes them for me sometimes. I wouldn't change a single thing...they are awesome!!
