About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
My latest has been a beans and rice recipe that I got off of here, I added some bits and bobs, and it turned out GREAT!! Also my hybrid Thanksgiving turkey recipe, part Alton Brown, part Tyler Florence, it ALWAYS comes out deeeelish, although it is an AMAZING hassle to cook!
My cooking tragedies
THE WORST was my first (and LAST) attempt at cooking squid....eeeeeeeewwwww!! And to cap the tragedy off nicely, I cooked it for a family that I was working for at the time!!! So much for impressing the boss! ;-)

Slow Cooker Carnitas
This was a great recipe to cook up and portion out in freezer bags to have on hand for other recipes. I made just a few minor changes. First, I used the boneless pork rib meat because its what I had, and it is amazingly cheap as well. Second, I cut way back on the cinnamon as I thought it would be overpowering otherwise. Just a pinch was all it needed. Otherwise, wonderful recipe and am planning on a repeat performance tomorrow.

Ground Beef and Sausage in Red Beans and Rice
I made this the other night as we needed a good budget dinner for the fam. We all enjoyed it, but I did add some seasoning. I used a cajun seasoning mix, and added about 1/2TB. or maybe a little more. This might not be to everyone's taste, but I would definatly recommend some sort of added seasoning. Also, please cut WAY down on the rice, as that amount of raw will give you 3/4 GALLON of cooked rice!!

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies
ABSOLUTLY AWSOME!!!!!!!!!! Followed recipe and the dough made 44 good size cookies, 2 of which didn't last long enough to cool all the way! :-) 5 stars for taste and ease of prep. I used a TB cookie scoop, which I would highly recommend to anyone who is even a casuel cookie baker. They make the task of dough portioning WAY easy!! Can you tell I liked these?????!! Oh, one more thing that I personally found put these yummies OVER THE TOP, was to double the amount to salt called for. Chocolate and salt play VERY nicely together....give it a try!!!
