About this Cook
I'm recently married and also recently graduated from college (Yeah!) so I'm starting to have more free time to try out all the awesome recipes I have found here over the last couple of years!
My favorite things to cook
Anything really that my family enjoys. For some reason, people think of me as the dessert specialist so I am always asked to bring pies, cakes, cookies, etc. to family functions
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays with my mom learning all her secrets because she never followed a recipe (and now neither do I) and she also had all of her favorite ones stored in her head rather than a recipe box!
My cooking triumphs
I Love to take a recipe and modify it according to my tastes. If I do that with one I find on I always make sure to say so in the review. I don't think it's fair to judge a recipe harshly if it has been changed!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any tragedies yet, but I'm sure there will come a day when I update this section!

Mango Jam
I used frozen mango slices for this and half the sugar as many reviewers did. I also added 1 or 2 T. lime juice and 1 tsp vanilla. I wanted it to taste like the Mango Mango preserves that were featured on Shark Tank recently!

Irish Champ
This was perfect served with corned beef and cabbage last night for Saint Patty's Day! I used less green onions and added fresh parsley and "real" bacon bits. Also stirred in sour cream to make it creamier. I'd be very interested in adding an egg next time as the most popular reviewer stated. FYI: You'd only need to add shredded cheddar cheese to make this Loaded mashed potatoes ;-)

Blueberry Crisp II
We loved this! I baked it closer to 45 or 50 minutes. The tang of mayo was perfect with the sweetness of blueberries. One of the easiest and quickest desserts I've ever made! Next time, I will add lemon zest to the filling and maybe increase the topping amount.
