About this Cook
I'm a house-wife (a rare thing in this day and age) and a mother. I try to make meals that will be popular with my ground-beef-and-potatoes husband and picky three-year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Actually I have favorite things to eat rather than favorite things to cook! :) I finally mastered fried chicken, thanks mainly to the tips on the Crispy Fried Chicken recipe on this site. Oh, and I love cheese dishes. I'm suprized no one has made a favorite cheese meals list yet. Maybe I'll do it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is an excellent cook. (I still drool over her 7-up Cake.) My mother is a wonderful and loving woman but does not like to cook as much as I do. (She makes a very tasty chili, though) Most of the cooking I learned I taught myself. The Allrecipes website is a great help!
My cooking triumphs
Well, as I stated earlier I finally, after years of struggle, mastered fried chicken due mostly to the tips on The Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe by Elaine O'Neill. Thanks Elaine!
My cooking tragedies
I did finally learn to make delicious fried chicken but it took me a couple of years to learn. The first time I tried to make fried chicken I burned it up so badly that the fire alarm went on. Also grease splashed everywhere permantly staining some dvd jackets I own. (None of my dvds were damaged, thankfully.)

Brazilian Lemonade
I tried this recipe for my three kids. It was okay but maybe a tad too exotic for their tastes. They all told me they preferred milkshakes. Lol!

White Texas Sheet Cake
My husband insisted this cake was too sweet. My three year old daughter who usually is a sugarholic like myself, wouldn't touch this cake after the first bite. Personally, I love this cake! But I want to accurately reflect the opinions of my family in this review. What I might do is make this cake again and lessen the sugar content (especially in the icing) and then sneak it to them again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I loved these cookies! Chewy, nutty (I added 3/4 cup of halved walnuts to mine) moist and delicious ...these were everything a good chocolate chip cookie should be. From now on this is my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! By the way, be sure to keep them in a closed container if you want to keep these cookies soft and moist. I got that tip from Gwenec.
