About this Cook
Hi, I'm Shannon! I'm a 21 year old grad student. (Hint: Go Gators!) I'm studying to become a 2nd grade teacher. I love to cook and bake! My parents are from the islands so I like my foods to have LOTS of flavor- My friends are always amazed at how many spices and seasonings I own!
My favorite things to cook
Caribbean foods, baked goods, breakfast foods, salmon, anything I can grill on my George Foreman!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Curry chicken, rice and peas, macaroni pie, and pineapple upside-down cake at EVERY family event ^_^
My cooking triumphs
My curry chicken finally tastes like what my mom used to make- Yay! I always get requests for my cheesecake and pineapple upside-down cake at events ^_^
My cooking tragedies
I have a problem with baking cookies- it's always very hit or miss (more miss than hit LOL). They either burn on the bottom or they come out weird and puffy! I will conquer them though ^_^

Matt's Chicken Adobo
This recipe was not bad. The first time I made it as-is. The second time I made it with apple cider vinegar instead of white and both my husband and I thought it was an improvement. This will probably be my go-to recipe when I just want to throw together dinner since it's so easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. Sometimes I add a few tablespoons of sugar to the sauce to make things interesting. Always spoon the sauce over rice! :-)

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole
I've made this dish several times, and every time I get rave reviews! It's my go-to dish for potlucks, so I usually double everything in the recipe except for the milk and the spinach. I've found that doubling the milk makes the sauce too runny. Doubling the spinach is just a matter of personal preference - I like spinach but I think even with the recipe doubled, the 10 oz package works out just fine! Sometimes I throw in an extra garlic clove or two as well. So good! My vegetarian and pasta-loving friends rave about it!

Oven Fried Chicken III
YUMMY! I used this recipe with drumsticks and the chicken came out so moist, the breading was good and flavorful! Forget Shake N Bake, this will be my go-to "faux-fried" chicken recipe from now on!
