About this Cook
I love to cook many things. The thing I love is cook with friends. I find that is a wonderful time for sharing and just being ourselves and real, even if the dish doesn't work. That's why at parties, it seems like the kitchen is always filled with people trying to help and be involved........... Those are wonderful memories, even if we "mess up," we laugh. I do love cooking shows, but when I'm hungry and watching them, I want to get up and start cooking something. They seem to MAKE me hungry.
My favorite things to cook
Well............. hmmm, I do love the taste of fresh pasta made with White Flour. I worked for a pasta company that made fresh pasta out of semolina, but it's a little too 'al dente' for me. I am a former professional cake decorater, so showing off how I can decorate a cake is always good for the ego. I love to eat, so whatever I cook, that's a new recipe, I'm in to!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Didn't have many.............. but I always wanted to explore new dishes even when I was young.
My cooking triumphs
I made a tiramisu that was amazing!! Of course, when I first put the eggs on the heat they scrambled. Luckily it called for 6 eggs, which I still had 6 left and the second time it came out PERFECT. I did get the recipe from AllRecipes. YUM, YUM, YUM.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count along the way :)

Authentic Thai Coconut Soup
I thought this was great. Of course, I did read the reviews and modified a bit. My one local Asian store did not have lime leaves. So I took the advice of another viewer and used the zest of a lime. I also added the lime shell to the pot once I took out the juice. I added more fish sauce and added Red curry paste (lots.) I like that spicy/salty/sweet taste. I used Palm sugar (I have that, I'm sure brown is fine, but I like the Palm Sugar.) I did not precook the shrimp. I added it at the end. It added a lot of shrimp flavor to the dish. I cooked it for a few minutes on simmer and the shrimp was so sweet. For leftovers, I took the shrimp out and heated the soup without the shrimp. I dropped in the shrimp to the heated soup. This way it does not dry out the shrimp and still so sweet. I also added a 1/4 cup of cilantro which I love in Thai cooking. I also took the shells of the shrimp and cooked them with water to get a great shrimp broth. Will be using that in a Tom Yum soup. Thank you for this recipe. YUM. Next time I will double the soup, as I will freeze the soup and add the shrimp as needed.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
I did not like this recipe. It was so runny that I kept adding more confectioner sugar to make it stiff. It didn't and the only thing I achieved was a sugar frosting. Finally I added more cream cheese, but it was so runny. I did kind of pour it on my carrot cake, but I have made much better cream cheese frosting.

Creamy Bacon-Wrapped Chicken
I really like the taste of this dish. My problem was a lot of the cheese filling came out......... :( When (not if) I do this again, I would make sure to use lots of toothpicks to hold it together, or maybe even sew it shut.
