About this Cook
I am nearly thirty. Gasp! I am the oldest daughter and grew up in my mother's kitchen. I learned most of my basics from her. She grew up cooking Kansas style and added some German recipe's to her mix when she married my father (his mother was German). She always had fun making new concoctions in the the kitchen. My father ALWAYS cooked breakfast on the weekends, things like potato pancakes, french toast, or omelets. So naturally my first and longest job was in a restaurant. Although I no longer work there, I really enjoyed having that huge kitchen to play in.
My favorite things to cook
BROWNIES! I also love to cook anything with fresh veggies in it, especially tomatoes. My newest favorite thing to play with is falafel. The possibilities are endless.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Try it see if it works.
My cooking triumphs
Brownies with cream cheese filling (sometimes chocolate chips added in for "those" days). I memorized this recipe when I was 18 and when family visits they expect them "warm, gooey" and on hand.
My cooking tragedies
I had made stuffed chicken breast once (with broccoli/cheese filling and a bread crumb crust) and it came out awesome. So when I started dating my man, I decided I would wow him and his friends with my expertise and make it again... however, I misjudged the thickness of the chicken or the length of cook time or something and they all turned out raw on the inside. He and his friends still refer to that day as the day I made them salmonella chicken.

Molasses-Oat Bran Bread
i haven't made bread in some time and was excited to give this a go. as i was kneading it, it seemed that i reached the correct consistancy at 2.5 cups flour, rather than 3. however, it seemed VERY dense, although the flavor was tasty. :)

Sausage Gravy
loved it! i was making in smaller portions for the two of us so i used a couple of chopped links for each of us(bought in bulk then portioned and put in freezer). i added a bit of butter to sausage fat to stretch it a bit and a touch of pepper to it as it thickened. i thought it was the perfect breakfast with Nancy Horsburg's Fluffy Biscuit recipe and a fried egg. :o) (I made the gravy once with maple sausage and boyfriend preferred it, though i thought it was odd.)

Rempel Family Meatloaf
I loved it. She is right-the recipe is very forgiving and easy to adjust to your tastes. I subbed BBQ sauce instead of steak sauce, subbed cheese crackers for the butter rounds, added a cup of bread crumbs, 3 oz of finely diced onion, 1 oz fresh diced banana pepper, and then I topped it with American cheese and tomato juice before I baked it. Everyone here eats at different times so I split it into 3 smaller pans (making it possible to add more onions to the loaf I would later devour with a roomie) and *bonus!* I only had to cook them for 35-40 min to reach the 160 degrees.
