About this Cook
I was raised in a family where both parents worked and dinner was either take-out or Hamburger Helper. Needless to say, I never learned how to cook and really loathed the idea of cooking for myself. In the past 2 years, my mind-set has totally changed! I find cooking alone in the kitchen therapeutic and I feel a sense of pride whenever I make something yummy.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta dishes, casseroles (well, anything I can throw in a baking dish and cook in the oven), cookies, cupcakes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hopefully, my sister and I have recently started a new tradition of cooking our mother breakfast on Mother's Day. Our mom was so happy to have breakfast cooked for her this year!!
My cooking triumphs
Any time I cook for someone else and they love it. I also love it when leftovers are gobbled up the next day - because the dish was so yummy.
My cooking tragedies
I am scared to cook chicken breast in a skillet. I have had some bad experiences before (memories of a smoke-filled apartment come to mind). I also don't particularly like cooking with bone-in chicken pieces.

Microwave Corn on the Cob
Love it! This is the easiest, tastiest method of making corn on the cob.

Manicotti Alla Romana
This was good, but very labor-intensive. I normally don't spend this much time making dinner, and I'm not sure the result of my efforts warrant making this again. It was good, but not great.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya
This was a good "kitchen sink" recipe. I used what I had on hand to throw into the jambalaya. I used chicken, but not kielbasa. I used only 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a green bell pepper. I omitted the celery. I used Sriracha as my hot sauce. Overall, the dish was okay. The leftovers weren't eaten, which tells me a lot. Very filling, though! I think next time I will add a can of diced tomatoes.
