About this Cook
I love to cook. I usually "wing it" except, of course, when baking. I have a few signature dishes, but love to expand and try new things. I have a family of 3. My husband, 7 year old daughter and myself, but usually cook for an army! LOL. Leftovers are usually prevelant in my fridge, and end up getting tossed, not because they're not good, just because I seem to cook a "meal" every night. I'm a meat and potato kind of girl, but seafood could get me every time. Love that surf and turf and occasional dessert.
My favorite things to cook
Dinner. NO doubt. But I love breakfast, brunch kind of foods too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my own birthday cakes for my daughters theme parties every year, and decorating from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
Having my recipes distributed to dozens of friends and relatives. Usually "made up" kind of dishes.
My cooking tragedies
Boiling eggs to the point that the pan dried up, and the eggs exploded all over my kitchen. What a smell. (I was reading a really great novel!) The pan was destroyed and my husband teased me for years.... "Are you cooking something?" "no....... OH CRAP, the eggs!!!!"

Homemade Arepas
This is pretty much the recipe from the cornmeal product container. Having said that... you can't really beat it. Sometimes, if only seving as a vessel for salsa, I 'll add some seasoning to the batter, but it is totally not necessary. Easy, fast and delish.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
I made three different soda bread recipes this year. This is by far the best off the three. I used about 1/3C white sugar and would keep it that way. Next time I will also add raisins and caraway seeds to this base recipe for more of an "American" Irish soda bread. Yummy!!!!

Brennan's Irish Soda Bread
I found the flavor very good but the texture seemed off.
