About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I can't make pancakes! The first time I tried in college I put 1/2" of oil in the pan and got fritters! Never have lived it down.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
This is an awesome recipe! Only tried it because we did not have shortening in the house when we were going to make the Cook's Illustrated crust (the one with vodka in it, which is awesome also) for a galette--so glad! Have not tried it in a sweet application yet, but I'm sure it's just as delicious. So buttery...and browns so nicely! Will use this recipe again and again!

Burgundy Stroganoff
Great recipe! I used sirloin, cabernet and light sour creambecause that is what I had on hand. Plus the ever present "better than boullion" beef base that I always have on hand. I added about a half cup of water and covered the pan for the 45 minute simmer just to make sure it didn't dry out. Added a bit of kosher salt at the end. End result was velvety smooth and rich! Shockingly enough my two kids (age 11 and 8) also loved it and I did not have to pull out the emergency chicken nuggets for them! :)
