About this Cook
I'm 32. I've been cooking since I was a little girl. I remember coming home from school and making a snack in front of an "audience". I'd say things like, "I already have one made." And pull the peanut butter and jelly sandwich out of the oven. I'm married and have a daughter, Josephine. She is 19 months old and at a great age where I can introduce new meals to her. I don't want her to be a chicken nugget kid.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, frittatas, baked italian meals, quick and easy inventions
My cooking triumphs
Every once in awhile I get lucky and make something terrific. I quickly add it to my recipe box as something my husband and daughter loved. Then when I'm in a pinch for something tasty, I pull out those "successes" and make those.
My cooking tragedies
I once made an omelette for a guy I was dating. I tried to get fancy and put some different herbs into it. I made it. Served it. And after I took ONE bite I realized what I did. I PUT LEMON PEPPER in my eggs!! YUCK! He was very gracious and tried to choke it down. I felt like such a blockhead.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins
Delicious. However... She mentions coconut twice in the descriptions and it's NO WHERE in the recipe or directions. I used 1/2 cup mini choc. chips instead of walnuts. I also used whole wheat flour instead of white. She mentions using "muffin cups in muffin tins". I believe she meant paper cupcake cups. I used them. I highly recommend them. No clean up! I had more than 12 cupcakes though. (20 mins at 350!) So I sprayed PAM in a ramekin and put the rest in it. (25 mins at 350 cuz it was bigger.) It was delicious with some ice cream warm out of the oven.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
I just sprinkled Montreal Steak Seasoning on the loin (1.7 lb piece) and then poured in the liquids. Marinated in a bag for an hour and a half. Baked at 350º for 45 minutes. But my piece was a little smaller/thinner than the one in the recipe. Let it rest!!!!! It was the juiciest most tender piece of pork I ever ate. Served with stuffing and home-canned red beets. Delicious!

Peanut Butter Dreams
Yum. I divided the recipe in half... or else I would've eaten all 60 of them myself. I softened the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. I added the PB and put it in the microwave again for 20 seconds. It needed help. Or I'd have been stirring it forever trying to get it to combine. I added the sugar and used my hands to combine all of that together. Finally I added the cereal and used my hands again to mix. I think it would've been very time consuming to just use a spoon.
