About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much everything. I love trying out new recipes. My husband doesn't necessarily enjoy it because he never knows if it's going to be a sucess or a failure, but he's a good sport most of the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite is baking cookies. Any kind, but especially cut-out cookies. My 5-year-old daughter and I make them on Christmas Eve just like my mother and I used to do. She loves helping to mix the dough and then has fun frosting and decorating them. My 1-year-old son got to help this year too. It's messy but fun!!
My cooking triumphs
I tried everything to make the perfect Thanksgiving turkey, from oven bags to mayo on the skin. I finally found a great recipe in a friend's magazine about 5 years ago. My stepdad makes fun of me because the turkey has to be flipped, but he's always the first to compliment me too. The turkey is always moist and juicy and has so much flavor. The gravy is wonderful too.
My cooking tragedies
My mom would make this wonderful Ketucky butter cake that was so moist and yummy. The recipe got lost when she moved. I found a recipe on the web and was so excited to finally make it for my husband. After the cake has been baked, you pour a sauce of melted butter and sugar over it. I forgot to cook it until the sugar melted and it had this gross layer of hardened sugar on the bottom of. I haven't tried to make it since.

Fudge Puddles
I made these as part of our cookie trays this year. The kids and husband loved them.

Thai Noodle Salad
I really enjoyed this dish. My husband did not, but he doesn't really like the flavors in Thai dishes. I used all red bell pepper because that is what I had on had and chicken instead of shrimp. I also added extra Thai chili sauce - I love that stuff! It was better after sitting for a couple of days.

Carrie's Garlic Pesto Tuna Salad Sandwiches
Made this recipe as is and it was okay. I didn't like the flavor the mustard added to it. I love pesto and it's a great way to jazz up boring old tuna, but I will leave out the mustard in the future.
