About this Cook
I recently lost my job and have just started college again.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make fudge at Christmas and cookies. I like to just throw things together and see how they taste.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a great cook and the smell of onions and garlic on my hands always makes me think of her.
My cooking triumphs
Anything new that worked out! Probably my beer battered fried chicken fingers or vidalia onion rings. Yum...not too healthy but good.
My cooking tragedies
Butterscotch pudding with scrambled eggs.

Key Lime Pie VII
So easy and so delicious!! I didn't have enough limes so I filled in with a little bit of lemon juice. This is so yummy! I accidentally bought a shortbread crust instead of a graham cracker crust but it worked out just fine. I put whipped cream all around the edges and in the center then sprinkled some more lime zest on top. Will certainly make this again.

Round Steak Sauerbraten
My whole family loved this. I doubled the recipe but tripled the sauce and thickened it a little bit when it was finished cooking. I don't like bay leaves so I left it out. I just browned the meat then set it aside, made the sauce then added the meat back in and stuck it in the oven for 90 minutes. I made homemade noodles to go with it. This is a definite keeper for us.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie
This pie was delicious. Much more flavor than the canned pumpkin. I steamed my pumpkin instead of baking it. The teenage boy said it was the best pie ever.
