About this Cook
I've been teaching myself to cook because my dad just started to live alone, so whenever I come home from school I like to give him a break from TV dinners, since he refuses to learn to cook himself.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, Pasta, stir fry, sauces, casseroles. I also make amazing choco chip banana bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken Divan has always been a household favorite ever since my siblings and I were young. Now that I cook, I've added my own special touches to differ it from my mom's.
My cooking triumphs
I'm good at figuring out what will go with what dish and I'm good at experimenting with recipes.
My cooking tragedies
My first try making soft caramel resulted in brick hard caramel stuck to tinfoil. I've mastered it since, but it took a while!

It's Chili by George!!
I made this chili for my dad and Uncles for football Sunday and it was a big hit! I took the advice from other reviews and substituted diced tomatoes in their own juices for the tomato juice, and it made the chili nice and hearty. I also added an extra half a can of both beans and it made all the difference.
