About this Cook
Lemme see....I'm 25, I love cooking, but only when I have someone to cook for! I sometimes wish times were not so fast paced and a dual income wan't so necessary because I wish I could stay home and bake, and cook and make a healthy home for myself and my loed ones....sigh...perhaps one day!
My favorite things to cook
ohhhhh.....it a tough call.....especilly after finding this site! I like everything! I guess what I really enjoy cooking are things that I really know and have tried many times so I KNOW they will turn out!
My favorite family cooking traditions
PASTA!!!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I made...honest to goodness, restaurant style chinese food once. It tasted just like the real thing! I'm still working on the perfect loaf of white bread, but that will come!
My cooking tragedies
too many to count, please ont let me relive the horror! Ususally my tragedies are baking related (I'm just learning) but once I burnt a simple 'ol pot of tomato soup.

Easy Granola Bars
I would give this a zero if I could. The sweetened condensed milk is the only saving grace of this recipe. First off, quick oats are not the best option. You would be much better off toasting slow oats and allowing them to cool before applying them in the recipe. Second, these do need to be packed rather firmly in order for them to hold well and the end result is a very dense bar. This recipe needs something to lighten the mixture considerably. Puffed rice would work or as I had mentioned, toasting the slow oats would work as well. Also, this recipe needs at least a half teaspoon of salt to balance the sweetness. Vanilla helps too. These were just dense and raw tasting, and ultimately unpleasant. I have NO idea how it has been rated so high thus far.

Shepherd's Pie VI
This an excellent base recipe and the cheddar cheese is a MUST (it browns so nicely in the oven). However, this recipe is missing vital compenents. Worcestercire sauce is a big one...I've never seen it NOT used in a shepherds pie recipe. About a tablespoon or so for this recipe would do nicely. I also added a small amount of garlic to round out the flavour of the beef, about a clove or two for the recipe is sufficiant. I also like to add green peas for a splash of color (even though they are not traditional).

Triple Berry Crisp
I would've given 5 starts because this turned out GREAT! I gave 4 because I added another cup or two of berries since I had so many lying around that needed to be used. Without the addition of these extra berries, I think the crust to berry ratio would've been to high. With the extra cup or so of berries, this recipe was just right. I did cut down the butter just a smidge and used about a cup, omitting the other half. The bottom crust was lovely, soft and chewy while the top crust was crisp and crunchy. All in all, aa real keepr! Just up the berries a bit and its a HIT!
