About this Cook
Mother of one. Engaged to be married June 08'! We rarely go out to eat, or order out, which means that I am usually in the kitchen.. I really love to cook, so it's all good.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade pizza, soft pretzels, cheese burgers, meatloaf, baked orzo, pasta salads, mac and cheese, and risotto, to name a few. Cookies, pies, and cakes for dessert.. I love both cooking and baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's mac and cheese on just about every holiday. Boiled shell pasta, butter, (lots of ) sliced cheese & pepper. And my grandma's peanut butter and cocoa no bake cookies each and every Christmas. I end up making these two dishes more than I should.
My cooking triumphs
Mushroom Risotto & falafels seemed too advanced for me, and I did not think I could successfully cook them- until I did. ^___^ Both turned out awesome, thanks to the members that poseted wonderful recipes, and to the people that leave helpful comments.
My cooking tragedies
[EVERYTHING I COOK IS A FIVE] Seriously, fried chicken was tricky. Just have to remember to check the insides before assuming they are cooked. (one slice- look for the juices to run clear)

Fry Bread Tacos II
Everything I cook is a five. Seriously delicious fry bread. I agree the 'taco meat' was very bland..but this is why we cooks taste as we're cooking. So delicous, we like using the left overs for desserts. Add some chocolate sauce, or jam.. Wow. All three of us Loved it.
