About this Cook
I use AllRecipes almost every day. I find the reviews really helpful. I've learned so much from reading them about cooking, spices, substitutes and tricks to make a dish better.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast is my favorite meal to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The night before the holiday, we pile in the kitchen and do the prep work together.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest gain in this past decade has been to be more bold in using spices. Now I'm a spice girl maniac!
My cooking tragedies
I once burned the holiday ham. Smoke billowing out of the kitchen and everything. Guests walked in on the whole thing. Yikes!

O to the M to the G! I followed the recipe to the T. I took another reviewers caution and used a large pan without the non-stick surface. I took my time ... with the patience of Job ... for one full hour to reach 250 degrees. And here's the only thing I did differently: I added smoked sea salt to the end product. JUST BEAUTIFUL. Texture - perfect. The combo of sweet and salty was perfection. Amazing recipe!

Creamy Lemon Squares
These turned out okay. What I was hoping for was a really zesty, tangy lemon square that packed a little punch. The lemon taste just wasn't very potent. I went with the graham cracker crust suggestion of a number of other posters ... that was yummy. But next time, I'll try to do something to get more zing in these bars.

Angel Chicken Pasta
EXCELLENT. Make this. I only tweaked 2 things … I added fresh mushrooms and doubled the gravy/sauce, whatever you call it. Other reviewers said that was the thing to do so I did it ... and they were RIGHT. Look … this is just a darned good recipe. Total comfort food! Perfect when you've had a rotten day or when it's cold and rainy or when you just need to give yourself a hug. Do it. Make it. You deserve a good squeeze. Thank you Marian Collins ... this recipe saved my rotten day from being a total wash!
