About this Cook
I just recently took an interest in cooking, although my partner Carol has been doing it for awhile. She helps me out while I'm still getting oriented in the kitchen! We are the only two to feed on a day to day basis, as the rest of our family consists of furry creatures who are not allowed to have human food. Now if I find some recipes for cat, dog, or rat food, I might have to check those out...
My favorite things to cook
Italian. It's usually so easy, what with the boiling water, and I like easy and fast. My favorite of all favorites is mac & cheese; it has been my comfort food through many a stressful situation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's corn recipe - I'm sure I'll be adding that one - which she would make for every event ever. I come from a long line of non-cooks, and this is really pretty much the best (almost only) thing she ever makes that I really like a lot. G-maw's yummy chocolate pies also win.
My cooking triumphs
BOILING WATER! Go me!! No, really, I haven't been cooking for very long, but the few recipes I do know (like the afore mentioned corn recipe) always are well-received.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't been cooking long enough for anything too tragic to happen. Um . . . I reheated leftovers once and accidentally hit an extra zero on the microwave. The bread turned into a rock. It was awesome.

Apple Breakfast Bread
Made this for breakfasts last week and my partner and I both loved it. It keeps really well over multiple days, too. As some other users suggested, I used half brown sugar and half white.

Asparagus, Chicken and Penne Pasta
I cooked the chicken with the spices and olive oil, and it made it very flavorful. I was surprised at how well flavored this whole dish was, but it really was a wonderful meal. We added oregano, basil, and parsley, along with extra red pepper flakes since we like spicy things. This was my first time cooking fresh asparagus, and it went okay. I decided to boil them with the pasta for a little while, and that worked well.

Apple Glazed Pork Chops
This was my first allrecipes.com recipe to try! I love adding fruit to meat and salads, so thought this sounded good. Based on some other reviews, I did not use the onion soup mix, instead opting for some brown sugar, more cinnamon, and some other spices. However, I think next time (and there will be a next time!) I will try adding half a packet, it could have used the extra bite. My partner and I ended up adding some onion powder after the first few bites, and it helped a lot. Very good recipe - it made the kitchen smell like Autumn!
