I haven't posted in a while but I wanted to hop on and say how EXCITED I am to have a SECOND fridge/freezer! I never realized how nice it could be!! This is on the same level as, say, a KitchenAid mixer.Fellow Lords and Ladies of the realm of Kitchen: If you have the means and motives, ask for… MORE

About this Cook
I enjoy trying new recipes and unusual ingredients. There are few foods I will turn down without a second thought - sweets is one of them, and fiery hot spicy food is the other. As I'm getting older that is changing, though. I love reading cook books and doing research about food. It fascinates to no end! I usually create a recipe from several different ones. On the non-cooking side of things, I'm a Christian, native Texan and faithful Longhorn with two cats and a great boyfriend! I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. I'm also somewhat obsessed with the nuclear winter and extreme survival situations.
My favorite things to cook
In general I try to cook from scratch. Any kind of bread - rolls, loaves, boules, baguettes, buns, biscuits, quick breads - will catch my eye. Pastas, soups, and cookies. I am absolutely in love with cake batter. Once I had a party in middle school where we just made a bunch of cakes and ate the batter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey/waldorf salad/mashed potatoes with gravy by my mom, buttermilk biscuits on Sunday morning before church from my Dad, grilling hamburgers in the summer in the backyard, black eyed peas for new years dinner, decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve with my sister, coffee any time of the night.
My cooking triumphs
I can rival my dad in his biscuit making ability. I have the perfect dinner roll recipe - my very own. I taught myself how to make jam and jelly. I taught myself how to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
dense as a stone wheat bread, homemade condensed milk tastes weird key lime pie, onions and sugar have no place hanging out together in mashed sweet potato, there's nothing puffy about my lemon meringue, and the bottom of the fish tank poached salmon.

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
The BEST! I used a lemon and its zest instead of extract. Not too overpowering. Only used 2 cups sugar and it was sweet enough.

Baked Chicken Wings
They were definitely crispy and moist, but I don't think they had much flavor at all. And I know chicken wings are messy, but for me these were a little too sticky.

Potato Chips
Surprisingly tasty! I used salt on the first batch and garlic salt on the second - the garlic salt is awesome. Mine took 4 min exactly - 2 on one side, 2 on the other. Anything longer burnt them.
