About this Cook
I am a young mother of a now 3 year old boy. I am going to school to become a child psychologist. I love to cook and try new things. Basically everything I do revolves around my son, just like any other mother =P
My favorite things to cook
Hm...I cook pretty much anything that looks good lol. But I would have to say baking is my favorite, so things like pies, cakes, cookies would be my favorite things to cook - especially since it's easier to let my son help me.
My cooking triumphs
Making my first completely homemade apple pie. Although I like to bake, I am notorious for burning anything baked. I usually do something while I wait and end up losing track of time, don't hear the timer, and end up burning whatever I am baking. So successfully making an apple pie that wasn't burnt and tasted good was awesome. BTW, I'm getting better =P
My cooking tragedies
Well, I just talked about all my burnt cakes and cookies, so those would be some tragedies. And there's the time when I made spinach and accidently used garlic salt instead of garlic was so disgustingly salty I had to throw it out. I'm sure there's much more that I can't think of

Mushroom Chicken Parmesan
OMG! This is delicious! And so easy too! I absolutely loved this. I did, however, make just a couple changes. Instead of flour I used Italian breadcrumbs with some added seasoning which I then cooked for about 1-2 minutes, til slightly browned, on each side in EVOO in a pan...I was worried that if I only used flour it would fall off. Everything else I did the same, with about 1 Tablespoon minced garlic in the baking pan as well.

Easy Focaccia
This is great! I added some garlic into the dough like several reviews suggested. I didn't have fresh rosemary so I used 2 tsp dried instead and added some fresh basil as well. It was awesome! I will definately be making this again...and it truly is easy!

Teriyaki Chicken
Delicious! I took the advice of others and used half white sugar and half brown sugar, and added about 1 Tablespoon lemon juice. I also used two big chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken. I cut the chicken into strips and cooked in a saucepan (only took about 10 minutes). I made it into a teriyaki bowl- rice, with stir fried veggies on top, then the chicken. I used the leftover marinade to make a sauce which I poured over everything, then sprinkled on some roasted sesame seeds. Everyone loved it...even my 3 year old!
