HI Everyone
Peruvian Cilantro Rice
About this Cook
Well, Im a wife & a mother to 3 hungry little kids. I try to make things as quickly & as easily as possible. I also try to please a very picky husband, which limits the fun I can have cooking...however, we still love to eat what I make & its always a great day after mommas home cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I make Mexican food alot as well as Italian & Southern style. Chicken Parmesan, Homemade Alfredo & Sundried Tomato sauce, Collard greens & hamhocks... ANYTHING when it comes to baking & sweet treats!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Halloween we make Popcorn Balls with & without peanut butter. Dinner @ the table everynight is also wonderful! so far those are the only ones we have, but we recently moved very far away from our family, so im sure we will start some more!
My cooking triumphs
My very first pie, was at like age 10?, and it was a lemon meringue. Turned out perfectly and delicious!
My cooking tragedies
oh man, i have had a few...i burn the breakfast sausage regularly, as well as many other things...i am running after an 18mo old, and he is very active...so sometimes its hard to make the perfect meal ;)

English Toffee
Well, I thought how hard could this be since Im an "expert" in the kitchen...but FYI candy making is pure SCIENCE! I learned that there are many factors to perfecting candies. One of them is the humidity and weather, so Florida might not be the best place to make these. Im guessing that it only took the author about 15 minutes because they were a master candy maker and had made this numerous times, maybe even in a dry climate. Anyways, I needed some toffee bars for these cookies I was going to bake (i will stick to baking from now on) but forgot to buy them. So I thought I would make my own. At first, It was going great... then I turned the heat up to carmelize it faster, and found out quickly that there is no way to speed up candy making, so dont try. That then caused my mixture to separate and all the butter was on top of this really grainy blob of goo. Well, i learned that you can fix that problem by adding a tablespoon of water at a time till it smooths back out. Fine, did that, and it looked much better again but still no toffee. I couldnt get it to the right temp. and after an hour of trying to make it right, I gave up. I do have some yummy grainy caramel taffy type things now though ;) Ill drop a lump or two in my coffee and go to the store to get those toffee bars after all!! I am sure the error lies with me so Ill give this 3 stars!
