About this Cook
I bake a lot but since I moved in with my boyfriend, I had to be an all-around cook. His family won't leave after I've started cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love roasting chicken because it's easy and always turns out well, and soup is fun because it is so versatile. Regardless of that, cookies are still my favorite, because they're just so much fun to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili is a big family tradition, but I think that goes for everyone. Our biggest tradition is breakfast; we do Christmas breakfast instead of dinner, special occasions always call for a big southern breakfast, and we always stuff ourselves so much we hardly have room for dinner that night.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest accomplishments are all involving last-minute meals. I throw whatever smells good together in a pot and cook it, and it usually comes out great.
My cooking tragedies
Well...remember when I said that I put whatever smells good in a pot and it usually comes out great? Usually is the keyword there. I tried making a chicken pot pie and I improvised a little too much...that's the only thing I've had to throw out.

Szechwan Shrimp
My boyfriend and I both enjoyed this recipe. I think I would prefer Sriracha instead of chrushed red pepper flakes for the heat, and I used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil. I agree with other reviewers to increase the sauce. Actually, I made four times the amount called for and added some canned water chesnuts and baby corn. Delicious over jasmine rice!

Tea Biscuits
These were super crumbly and yummy! I served these a side dish with dinner and instead of rolling the dough and cutting out biscuits, I just dropped clumps of dough on the baking sheet and they turned out fantastic with no leftover dough.

Danish Pastry
I thought that this was a great base to work off of. I made strawberry and stawberry-cheese danish, and they turned out to be wonderful and tender. The only suggestion I have is to make sure you start with small portions of dough when you are making something because when it rises and bakes, it grows!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
