About this Cook
26. Film student. Mom.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican this, fried that, completely improvised whatever.
My cooking triumphs
I make more variations of the cheeseburger than Rachel Ray, so I guess that's something.
My cooking tragedies
I once left a pot of water on so long that it all evaporated and the stainless steel pot blackened. There were a lot of "can't even boil water" jokes tossed around.

Pauline Werner's Beef Stew
Absolutely delicious! The only change I made was to use beef broth instead of water and a bit more of different seasonings for added flavor. I also used a roux to thicken the sauce, since it was a bit too watery for my taste. My entire family, including my picky 2 1/2 year old cleaned the pot!

Chicken Enchilada Soup III
I loved it. I made a few adjustments: I used Chicken broth instead of water for the entire recipe, and added an extra cup of that and enchilada sauce because I used 4 chicken breasts and one whole white onion. I put in 1 tsp each of coriander seed and cayenne pepper. I also added in a can of Rotel Extra Hot tomatoes and a handful of white corn at the end of cooking. I served it with more shredded cheddar and some green onions on top and Tostitos on the side. Amazing!

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo
It was great! Definitely one of the best burger recipes on this site. I added a little bit of Kosher Salt to the burgers to bring out the flavors of the Cajun seasoning, and some cayenne pepper to the mayo for some extra kick. I also buttered and broiled the buns. I will definitely be making this again and again!
