About this Cook
I've finally met the man of my dreams, but his mom is a FANTASTIC cook and I've got a lot of work to do to get up to that level.... so far, this website has been AMAZING at helping me build a repertoire of delicious home-cooked meals!I grew up in California, and have been living on the East Coast for the last 4 years, so naturally I am CRAVING good Mexican food!! Seriously, if anyone knows of an AUTHENTIC Mexican restaurant in Central PA, let me know. Last time I went out to a "Mexican" restaurant, I asked for chips and salsa and they gave me Tostitos and Marinara sauce... NO JOKE. THANK YOU THANK you to the posters of authentic Mexican recipies on this site... you are saving my life!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a newly-minted attorney, so time is in short supply. I do most of my cooking on the weekends, and if a recipe doesn't freeze well, I won't use it again. Stews, soups, and chilis are among my favorites. I'm quicky becoming a crock pot addict as well...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family wasn't too big into cooking... I'm creating my own!

Trail Blazer Barbecue Sauce
My first attempt at homemade BBQ sauce- what took me so long? Pretty darn tasty- only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had nothing to compare it to. I really like the texture that the blender gives, and it makes for a nice even flavor. Froze half of it and it tasted just as good after thawing as it did when I first made it. Used it to dress a southern pulled pork recipe from this site. Yum!

Mary's Sugar Cookies
very crumbly and hard to work with... had to re-roll four or five times to cut down on the cracking. They taste great with frosting, but if you're looking for a cookie to just decorate with colored granulated sugar, keep looking.

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs
This is the perfect "standard" spaghetti and meatballs recipe - tastes exactly as you'd expect! Only gave it 4 stars because it lacked that "wow" factor for me, but I've made it a few times now because its so quick and easy, and soooooo much better than canned sauce with meatballs!
