About this Cook
I have cooked for myself for a while, but am just learning to REALLY cook. I believe that almost anyone can cook almost anything if they follow the instructions. That being said, I am a very experimental cook, and I almost never follow a recipe. I can start out making fried chicken and wind up with a lovely pork roast by the time I'm done substituting. Sometimes this yields great successes, sometimes not so much.
My favorite things to cook
I love preparing things that just include a few ingredients combined into one simple, but tasty dish. I've got a 3 ingredient chocolate torte that would knock your socks off.
My cooking tragedies
I occasionally use the smoke detector as a timer.

Baked Kale Chips
Delish! I baked mine for about 7 minutes in a glass dish at 375. I agree with some others that spacing the leaves out a bit and not stirring while cooking gave the best results. Also, use a little less salt than you think you should.

Ginger Shrimp with Fried Rice
Very good. I only follow the recipe for the sauce, and threw in whatever veggies I have on hand. I also usually add peppers to this one to heat it up a bit.
