About this Cook
I'm 23 and have been cooking since I was 10 and liked helping before that. I love to try new things and seeing how others like what i cook. I cook much better than I bake :( Mainly pastries I have a problem with. I tend to cook Mexican, Italian or southern foods. My grandpa was a cheft who cooked for a couple of presidents back in the day and I'd like to one day get a hold of all his yummy recipes!!
My favorite things to cook
Pastas, chicken, casseroles, cookies and pies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Nothing too big, but on birthdays and mothers/fathers day I will cook favorite meals of choice.
My cooking triumphs
Making thanksgiving dinner for the first time.
My cooking tragedies
Boiling a chicken fryer down dry, partly black and house full of smoke!! Fell asleep after staying up all night. Also making a few loafs of banana nut bread without baking soda/powder when i was 14.

BEST EVER Mac and Cheese
This is better in my opinion without the cottage cheese. It's better to mix quickly after noodles are boiled and get a creamy cheesy mix...also might help to stir in a little milk as needed. I like fresh tomato slices on top!

African Chicken Stew
My boyfriend's family is from Zimbabwe and I love every chance I get to try her cooking. Always flavor-able and delicious! She usually makes a spinach with peanut butter and while I don't care for it, I've come around to the flavor of it in savory food because of her cooking. So I modified this recipe and added spinach & fresh tomatoes, chicken stock, brown sugar and less peanut butter. It's soo good & I wish I knew how to make their staple food sadza to go with it!!

Split Pea Soup
This comes out better each time I make it! I simmer my ham bone with a good amount of meat left on from the holidays along with a chicken bullion cube, crushed fresh garlic, onions, carrots, italian spice, garlic, a few bay leaves and pepper. After a few hours I take the bone out, remove meat, chop off and put aside. I add my split peas and after 45 minutes when they're cooked I add the ham back and add a can of new potatoes chopped. Came out perfect and so delicious!
