Me and my hunny
About this Cook
I live in the Denver Metro area. Since I've been laid off, I have really realized my love of cooking. I love spicy food, but overall taste is the most important thing!
My favorite things to cook
Anything vegetarian (as I don't eat mea), and anything with seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook by helping my mom make all the southern foods I grew up on.
My cooking triumphs
I threw together a tuna casserole with stuff I had at home and crossed my fingers it would turn out edible. It was awesome! The secret was Worcestershire sauce.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make some homemade rolls for Thanksgiving-they had to be tossed as they could have been classified as deadly weapons. Pretty much anything having to do with baking. I blame it on the high altitude here but really I think I just suck at baking-it's not my favorite thing to do at all.

Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce
OMG, these are amazing! I don't like crust on pies, I usually just eat the filling, but the crust so works with this! Use Granny Smith apples for sure. Follow the recipe exactly, it's perfect. And it was very easy to make-this coming from someone who does not like to bake. My step-son called me, after coming over just to get leftovers, about how amazing these are. Do you know how rare that is?!? LOL Fiance loved them as well, they were the "best apple dumplings he's ever had." You have to try this recipe, period.

Lemon Pepper Peas
I assume I didn't use enough spices, but both me and my fiance both agreed these tasted like peas with butter. Maybe if they were cooked longer in the spice, and not microwaved. I will use more spice next time, if I make them again. But mostly I'll just make peas with salt, butter and pepper. Simple is sometimes best.
