About this Cook
I love to cook. My favorite cooking show is America's Test Kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Right now I am really into trying new spices. I have perfected Chicken Tikka Masala this year, I make awesome meatballs, good blackened chicken and I am working on Caesar salad this year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I recently got my grandma's old cast iron skillet and have been learning how to cook awesome Filet Mignon in it!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make Indian food. It's really quite easy, the best recipe is on the website.
My cooking tragedies
My chicken pot pie soup was runny and gross! I have also overcooked a lot of steaks in my time! But, that is how we get better...

Salsa Chicken
Chicken was very tender. I did not have taco seasoning so I just used cayenne pepper and black pepper. We used for tacos. I had uncooked Foster Farms breast tenders and only cooked for 25 mins.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
I made this recipe with BOILED sweet potatoes until they were soft. I mashed them and then used an immersion blender to make it extra creamy. The only suggestion I have is to double the topping mix!!! The brown sugar/pecan topping is delish and I didn't feel like there was enough! Overall, this is a keeper recipe. I will make again.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII
These are hands down the best cookies. Super easy, and people LOVE them. 8 minutes is perfect. I added a couple tablespoons of leftover coffee to give it a little bit of a kick. If you love moist cookies, these are for you!
