About this Cook
I'm not really a bad cook. I rated myself as a beginner since I don't cook that often. My husband and I use this site jointly to change-up family meals. My husband does most of the cooking in the house with no complaints from me.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook would be just about anything that goes into the oven. I'm not one that likes standing over a hot stove stirring. I have tried 2 risotto recipes successfully, but I wouldn't recommend anyone with wrist problems to try them.
My cooking tragedies
One of my embarrassing cooking tragedies is the first time I cooked for my husband. Choosing to cook lumpia (an American favorite of Filipino Cuisine) I made the mistake of using OLD oil to fry them up in. Needless to say it was a very BAD experience. Lucky for me, he married me anyway. And that little incident has gotten me out of the typical woman's role of being the family's primary cook.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Just cooked up this recipe... and it is worth every star! It's fast and easy AND my son likes it. He's 6 yrs. old and like most kids, he does not like to eat the things that are good for him. Great job and THANK YOU for posting it!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
LOVE this recipe! The crust comes out flaky just like I like it:-) I made one big 13" pie for a party + two 6" pies for home. Thank you Barbara!

Homemade Apple Cider
I didn't add any sugar - my apples were sweet. I cooked the cider for the 3 plus hours according to the recipe and it turned out watery and under a gallon. Now my cider was fairly clear unlike the photo by Sweetcreations taken 12/04/2009.
