About this Cook
I learned how to cook as a rookie firefighter. Once I got the hang of chili and stews (typical firehouse cuisine) I started to venture out....NOW, I'm a SAHM of 2 (soon to be 3!) I cook every meal at home and my husband takes lunch to work. I'm always trying to find something new.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make different kinds of soups and chilis.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother never really cooked for us, so I'm starting a tradition.
My cooking triumphs
The perfect cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
Anything that requires a roux. I scald them everytime!

Split Pea Soup
THIS WAS AWESOME! I followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic! BEST I've ever had! My Minnesota-born husband grew up on split pea and he was very pleased with the results!

Kung Pao Chicken
I made exactly according to the recipe (minus water chestnuts- yuck) and it was delicious, but didn't taste like the King Pao I get at our local eateries.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks
I've tried every "baked" sweet potato ff, stick or slice recipe and they never seem to work out. Mine turned out limp and soggy. :-(
