About this Cook
My name is Mandi, and I am a 29 years old. I started cooking after seeing Rachael Ray on Food Network, and she inspired me that ANYONE can cook, and it doesn't have to take a rocket scientist to make gourmet meals. My favorite chefs are Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, and Mario Batali.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Rachael Ray has to offer. I have to say burgers, chicken and shrimp dishes. Oh, and who doesn't like cooking desserts?
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't know a lot of my family's cooking tradition. I did a lot of eating out when I was a child.
My cooking triumphs
The ability to look at bare 'bachelor' cupboards and make something awesome.
My cooking tragedies
Probably in my premature cooking days, when I burnt top ramen. That was not cool.

My Best Clam Chowder
This was fantastic! I did add Old Bay seasoning like other readers suggested. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because it wasn't thick like clam chowder. Will try again though, maybe with more flour? Thanks again!

Easy Swedish Pancakes
I loved this recipe. I altered it. I used 3 eggs instead of 4, 1 cup of flour instead of half a cup. I too, couldn't resist not adding vanilla. LOL. I made them like crepes. My husband made our daughter ones with Brown sugar and syrup. These were really wonderful. They are going into my rotation of recipes!
