About this Cook
I am a wife of one and a mother of two. I have recently started to enjoy cooking, however frustrating it might be when you're two year old spits out the dinner you just spent 2 hours on. Most of the time I prefer time with my family over any other activity. Since becoming a mom the thing I miss most would probably be sleep or freedom to do what I what when I want. Now everything revolves around naptime, dinner time, bath time, and bed time. None of which are my time! But, I try to enjoy every moment. One day I will look back and wish I had kids wrapped around my legs or screaming mommy.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that has four or more stars!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to love to help my Grandmother cook when I was little because she let me use my hands. But now I ask her for a recipe and she says, "Well, you know, a handful of this and a little of that. Some butter, sugar, salt, and just whatever I want really." Well, now, every time I want to learn how to make one of my Grandmother's recipes I call her and ask if we can have a day together and her teach me how to cook that meal. Every time she get a handful, before she drops it in the pot I take it and measure it (I have to bring my own measuring cups because she really doesn't have any). She has taught me so much. I love cooking with my Goose!
My cooking tragedies
I usually follow a recipe exactly. When it's done I taste it. If I feel it's missing something, I ask my husband.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
The only thing I did differently was use a rotissiere chicken instead of canned. If was delicious!

Curried Coconut Chicken
This was mmmmmm good! My friend brought us some curry paste from Bangkok and we wanted to use it. So the only thing we did differently was use the paste instead of curry powder. Even my two year old gobbled it up!!! We served it over rice and couldn't wait to eat left overs!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
We give this a four only because we added some things...but this was a great base to start. We added the beef broth but only had a 10 ounce can, so we added a couple shakes of liquid smoke and about half a bottle of hickory smoke A-1. Put it in the crock pot for fours hours and followed the instructions the rest of the way. It was AMAZING!!!! I would give the meal that came out 5 stars, but because we didn't stick to the recipe exact, I gave it 4...hope that makes sense.
