About this Cook
I'm a military vet and now a dependent. We have 2 daughters. Nobody likes to cook but me. The kids tinker with baking. I love this website and have been recommending people to it for years.
My favorite things to cook
We love mexican food. I make a lot of it, now that we're in Hawaii, I HAVE to make it. Mex restaurants here have no idea...
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Thursdays it's "wild turkey surprise" night. I get full license to try something new. It got it's name from an old Bugs Bunny cartoon with Taz.
My cooking triumphs
I love when I pull off a tricky recipes.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 12 or so, I made my dad a banana cream pie, but I pureed the bananas instead of layering them. The color was off, so I added food coloring. It looked as if it came from a diaper and it was runny. We have plenty of pictures as proof...

Scottish Shortbread III
SO EASY! I opted with the stand mixer and really whipped the butter and sugar before adding the flour. It came together wonderfully and simply patted it into the parchment lined pan. I also added a little almond extract. I thought the cookies wouldn't be sweet enough, but after tasting a few and especially with tea...they were perfectly sweetened. If I needed a sweeter treat, I would probably dip in chocolate. They went over well at the food tasting that I took them to.

Anthony's Lime Chicken with Pasta
Awesome! I loved this chicken! I added more parmesan to the crumbs, I used a little more butter in both recipes. I also used the bottled lime juice. I will make this a regular! Thanks!

Instant Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
AH HA! Oatmeal cleverly disguised in chocolate! My youngest daughter "hates" oatmeal, I had her read the recipe while she was licking the spoon. I had no problems with the cookies setting up, instead of nuts, I added 1 cup of semi-sweet chips with the oatmeal. They melted right away into the mixture, but it still turned out great!
