About this Cook
I love animals. And they all seem to find me when they are looking for a home. I love to cook, but I'm not very confident about my cooking. I'm not very good at meal planning or sticking to a planned out week of meals. I always have so many projects going on, that I usually wait till the last minute to start cooking, which ruins my plan. Right now I need to figure out what I'm going to do with those avacados that are sitting on my counter top going bad.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken salad quesedillas. I always get it right, never burn.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade biscuits. Potato cakes
My cooking triumphs
Can't think of any right now.
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving bread. I always burn the bread!?! It's like a running family joke at this point. I've been burning toast since I was a kid and I'm 35 years old now. I was so relieved to see Rachel Ray say the same thing one day on her show as she burned the bread.

Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
I've been cooking these for 10+ hours and the beans are still hard as a rock. I didn't even add the salt or other spices yet. I can't believe I haven't seen more reviews with the same problem. My slow cooker works fine. I used it often. I'm leaving it on all night. We'll see how it is then.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes
My 7 year old son decided he wanted to make mashed sweet potatoes, I asked him if he wanted to add maple syrup like this recipe said and he wanted to. But we only had pancake syrup. It is amazing!

Julian's Festive Tuna Salad
My kids, who dislike tuna sandwiches usually, said they loved this and asked that I make it this way in the future, adding hard boiled egg.
