My silly son Liam
About this Cook
I love to cook. I've been cooking and inventing foods since I was tall enough to see the top of the stove. I used to make my own soups as a kid. Kitchen sink soups though. I'd take whatever leftovers we had in the house and I'd go into the freezer and just put it all together with chicken broth or beef broth. (I have no idea where I learned to do it.) I'd have veggies and chicken and all kinds of things. I also used to make pancakes of all shapes, sizes and color. I used to substite for different flavors. Like apple sauce instead of water or milk. Or half the milk and the other half adding chocolate pudding.
My favorite things to cook
Beside making cakes of all kinds. I love to make boneless, skinless hot wing breasts. You just take boneless skinless chicken breast and cook them up like you would hot wings. They you make the sauce by mixing butter and Hot sauce. until you get the taste and hotness you want. delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father and my mother love to cook as well. We make a holiday out of everything just so we can cook. We all have our own recipes. We are working on our own family book and giving it to relatives that are dying for the recipes.
My cooking triumphs
The only thing I didn't triumph with was making homemade caramel apples. I just couldn't seem to get the caramel right.
My cooking tragedies
I destroyed Caramel appples. ha ha.

Beer Cheese Dip I
My mother used to make one similiar to this. Use Wise Spread cheese instead. Sautee the garlic. and start with 1/4 cup beer. Keep adding until you get the consistency and taste that you want. That way it won't be to messy or runny at all. Also when we make it we put it in a round pumpernickle loaf. We hollow it out, fill it with the dip and put the top back on. You can tear off pieces of the loaf and dip it or you can cut up some italian bread. While also using the inside of the loaf that you took out as well for dipping.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Delicious frosting. I did make it a little less cream cheesy by adding 1/4 cup extra sugar. I put it on a banana bread cake and it was delicious. Make sure you serve it though when the cake is cold. Put it in the fridge for awhile after you make it. The frosting gets the best flavor when its cold. (Make sure you put it on the cake first though, the frosting will harden up.)

Hot Chicken Wing Dip
I made this Dip for an appetizer on thanksgiving. It was delicious. I do have one tip though. If your going to make it the night before to save oven space don't put the cheese on yet. Make the main part of the dip, put it away and then add the cheese on top the day your going to serve it.(Microwave it if you can't use the oven.) I wasn't thinking and I cooked it all the night before. The cheese was VERY hard, but the dip underneath was good. I think it would have been the best dip ever if the cheese was melted right before. Oh and DON'T add the full amount of hot sauce. I used half of what the recipe called for and it was spicy enough.
