About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'm getting pretty good with making dinner dishes. I love to make stir fry, although I find it difficult to make it authentic. One of my specialties is smoked chicken chimichangas, everybody loves them. I'm wanting to increase my baking skills, as of now the only thing I'm good at is making cookies. Cakes are very challenging for me.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to stir fry. And homemade pizza, finally got it right!
My cooking tragedies
Any from-scratch biscuit. I just can't seem to figure it out (like I said, I'm not good at baking).

Smucker's(R) Oatmeal Carmelitas
For those of you who are calorie conscious like me... I wanted to let you know that I reduced the brown sugar to one cup and only used 1/2 c. butter, which I replaced the the other 1/2 c. with applesauce. A little stickier to work with but was still very delicious!
