About this Cook
I'm a college student, trying to graduate within the next decadeI have three cats that all sort of showed up on my front porch and stayed. One old hunting dog that's seen better days. I love cooking, but cooking doesn't love me. I have lots to learn! I like vegetarian dishes because they are cheaper and I feel like I have a decreased chance of burning something.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food is amazing! Authentic Mexican though. Anything vegetarian. A lot of French food thanks to my french grandmother.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Things we'll take to the grave :) My dad's ribs and chili are so good. I am in charge of pies during the holidays. Like I said, lots of simple French dishes and (because my heart is stuck in the south) fried green tomatoes.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make my grandmother's mayonnaise was a high point for me.
My cooking tragedies
Me learning to cook has been a long process. Three times starting out, I caught my kitchen on fire...Luckily nothing too big.

Green Tomato Pasta Toss
I made this for lunch today, and was pleasantly surprised. Instead of pasta, we served it over rice. I followed the suggestions of others, and added creole seasoning and garlic. Great recipe though. Definitely will make it again :]

Springfield Style Cashew Chicken I
This recipe is very close to the cashew chicken I had when I lived in Springfield, MO. It's very good and simple to do. I did use black pepper instead of white. Worth the time to make it.
