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!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
