About this Cook
I am old enough to be an expert cook by now, but I did not really start cooking until I found this site. Up until then my cooking consisted of spaghetti with canned sauce and tacos with packaged seasoning. I still make tacos with packaged seasoning, but now I know how and have made the seasoning from scratch. Thanks to all of the Allrecipes community for helping me learn to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love experimenting with breakfast. i try different things in my pancakes and crepes.
My cooking triumphs
Made Yorkshire pudding after my kids went to England and told me they loved it. I also made a very authentic African p-nut soup, as verified by my son who had the same dish from a woman from Africa. Both recipes were from
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list.

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
Amazing. I never had brussel sprouts before, heard to many horror stories of how bad they tasted. I knew I could find a good recipe here, and boy was i right. These were awesome. They are now a regular on my side dish rotation. The only change I made was that I used half olive oil and half Hazelnut oil. MMMMmmmmmmmmm.

i give this 4 stars only because some in my family did not like it. i took all the ingredients and threw them into the crock pot. I really liked it. Seasoned perfectly as recipe is listed no need for more, but you could add if you wanted.
