About this Cook
I love the great comforts of life. I love family, hanging around with my family and friends, working with children and seeing them smile, cooking in my kitchen and having everyone love the food I serve. I love entertaining, decorating and making everyone feel at home. I am a teacher during the day(part-time) and I work in a restaurant during some evenings. I live in Colorado and enjoy hiking, walking, sight-seeing, taking a nice long drive through the mountains, shopping in eclectic shops and enjoying the sunshine on my face.
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling steaks, chicken, pork, pretty much anything that is a meat. I love making appetizers, fast and easy. I have recently learned that I enjoy making new dishes, and not only love to have the taste be perfect but the display of the foods be as pretty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gathering around the kitchen and cooking with my family. WE love many southern recipes like fried catfish and chicken, bisquits and gravy, pot roast, roasted potatoes and carrots, etc. I now have learned to cook a little more healthy..light on the butter, oil, eggs, flour, etc. Learning to be a healthier cook without sacrificing the flavor.
My cooking triumphs
Making a roll that was just as good as my grandmothers and having everyone rave about them. Learning what a great griller I can be. Flavorful and not dry chicken, steak, etc. Being unafraid to try new things. I have found that Garlic Salt is my best friend in the kitchen, along with other great spices. I am not afraid to experiment and I find that it all works out.
My cooking tragedies
Baking...Baking...Baking...I always have so many things going on, and found myself burning almost anything I put in the oven. I now have learned to focus while baking, look up recipes on-line and learn new techniques. In the past, I burned most baking dishes, cookies, breads, etc.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs
Every single person I have made these ribs for were pleasantly surprised. I make these on a day when I have time to really let the water evaporate takes mine about 2 hours from the beginning to the end to make. And yes, I add the soy sauce but use low sodium soy sauce and I add it only in the last 30 minutes of stove time. I use cilantro that is freeze dried, you can buy it at the grocery store, the brand I use is Litehouse and you use it as the same amount you would use fresh cilantro. I also add a little more lime into the cooking phase as I go. I serve half of the ribs as they are with the seasoning on the bottom dripped over the ribs. The other half of my ribs I baste with bbq sauce and warm up in oven for about 10 min., turning once and re-basting... NO KIDDING....NOT ONE person has disliked these ribs..WINNER

Best Rolls Ever!
Thank you for this excellent roll recipe. I practiced the recipe a few days before Thanksgiving and it was a hit with absolutely everyone. I live in a high altitude area, so I added a bit more water and butter, increased the cooking temp a bit and a little less sugar (all based upon the high altitude teaching lesson on this website)...Perfect...I also did not refrigerate, but followed another users review and used my electric mixer (so easy) and after forming into balls, very close together, I plastic wrapped the dough balls and let them rise again. Baked until I saw a medium brown color. Sprayed tops of rolls and rolls on the side of pan with spray butter. So So yummy....
