About this Cook
I'm a mom with 6 school age children that I teach at home. I cook A LOT because of the volume of food that is required to feed this crew:) Thankfully, I *love* to cook. Unfortunately, like everyone, there is so little time to really enjoy it. But, Allrecipes has given me such a step up in cooking and baking. I love to peruse the recipes when I have a couple of extra minutes. My favorites in my repertoire are mostly from Allrecipes now: pretty chicken marinade, roasted garlic cauliflower, lemon thyme rice, baked zucchini chips, and chewy chocolate oatmeal cookies are some of our favorites that we've found here.

Crispy Orange Beef
This was REALLY good. I used about 1 1/2 T. of fresh grated ginger. The amount listed, as others have noted, must be a typo. Everything else I followed exactly. It was exceptional. Everyone loved it. I cooked the beef in peanut oil as another review suggested. It was fairly crispy outside and tender inside. The sauce was perfect. I think this would make a great appetizer, too, served with toothpicks.

Amazing Muffin Cups
I made it as written but found that the hashbrowns didn't crisp and these muffins were hard to get out of the pan (but they tasted good!) Also, the proportions were definitely off. It calls for far too much cheese and I needed more egg. I made a second batch and used my silicone mini muffin pan and upped the temp for baking the hashbrowns to 425. After pouring in the egg, I turned down the temp to 400 and finished cooking as the recipe states. They turned out MUCH better: Crispy hashbrown base and they popped right out of the silicone pan. I'll definitely make them again and I am going to try freezing & reheating the leftover muffins from today.

Brown Sugar and Spice Dry Ham Rub
I used this rub and baked a full spiral cut ham in a cooking bag. I was a little concerned that the bag would prevent it from forming a nice crust on the outside of the ham, but it didn't. It was fabulous. Definitely keeping this recipe for next time! The ham was perfect!
