About this Cook
I'm a nurse practitioner who enjoys cooking as a hobby but also a stress reliever. When I'm feeling really stressed from work, making breads, or desserts, is a relaxer for me. Then I like to bring the food in the next day to share with my coworkers. I also like entertaining.
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods, especially no bake or that don't require much fuss. All the items are in my cabinet and I don't need anything extra special.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Thanksgiving, it is a must to have green bean casserole and made from scratch cranberry sauce.
My cooking triumphs
Cracker porkchops, bacon wrapped filet mignon, and baked tilapia.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make mexican cheese dip. Somehow, the cheese was runny yet chunky. Needless to say, it went in the trash. Also, I've tried to make wacky cake several times. It's my boyfriend's favorite. Each time I made it, it's nothing like his mom's. So I finally got the recipe from her. I'll try again soon to make it.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
Fantastic! Be sure to scoop out the jalepenos really well. Some I did a little better than others. So some were hotter than others. But I didn't mind the heat. I also recommend wearing gloves cause my hands were burning a few hours later.

Brownie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
I took some of the other reviews and used a brownie mix for an 8x8 and followed the baking instructions from that. I also used a 10' pan. A little thin for a cheesecake but tasted great.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
This was ok. My glaze wasn't really a glaze. I think next time I'll add less vinegar and add more ginger. I couldn't taste it. But it's a good starter recipe.
