About this Cook
I like to recreate what I've had in restaurants, and see if I can make something a little bit better, and I just like cooking regular everyday meals. I love to cook for parties, and family get-togethers. My secret ingredient: Garlic Salt. The secret to a great cake: add extra oil, and mix for the minimum amount of time on med-low speed.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas, egg rolls, cheeseburgers and fresh french fries, rum cakes, crab rangoon, hummus, fried eggplant, potato latkes, chicken pot pies, adobo. In the summertime, I try to grill out as much as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents were always cooking different things when I was growing up, and I've always had an exposure to lots of different kinds of food and restaurants. My Mom is a great cook, so I get it from her.
My cooking triumphs
Figuring out how to make the Southwest Eggrolls like Chilli's restaurants, and the creamy dipping sauce. Honestly, mine are much better. I also figured out how to make a great sweet and sour sauce, and how to make great eggrolls like a restaurant we used to go to that's been closed.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make a strawberry and cream cheese jelly roll. The sponge cake was equivalent to foam rubber shoe inserts. I would like to learn how to bake bread in the future. That is something that escapes me, but it is something I would like to master.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
This biscuit recipe is good, and made nice big moist biscuits. They were slightly bitter or salty, so next time I may add a little less salt, but overall they were great. I blended the dry ingredients first, and then added the shortening, and blended it together with my fingers and then added the milk. The secret to fluffy biscuits is to work the dough as little as possible, so as soon as everything was moistened, I patted the dough out on a lightly floured board, and cut with a biscuit cutter. I sprayed the baking pan with cooking spray, but if I'm cooking bacon, my grandpa- who's from the South always told me when I make biscuits, to put a little bacon grease in the pan and to lay the biscuits in the pan and turn them over so both sides have a coating of bacon grease. I used these biscuits to make ham egg and cheese biscuits, and they turned out great! Thanks for posting the recipe!
