About this Cook
Myers-Briggs Personality Type: ISTP. I'm married with no kids, but lots of animals. I'm blessed to where I work full-time at a 8AM - 4:30PM job. When the work day ends, the animal care begins and cooking happens somewhere in-between. We also eat out quite a bit. This is how I discover more and more things that I would love to know how to cook. I love to learn, save money, be self-sufficient/independent, and be prepared while keeping things light-hearted and having a good time at the same time. I love to eat. Although, I am reasonable to my body and know when I need to eat less of something unhealthy or choose to eat a healthy, but still tasty dish instead. I like to eat food as fresh as it comes when possible, therefore I raise chickens for meat and eggs and enjoy eating a rabbit or two from the wild every now and then. This gives the animals a good life before journeying to the dinner table unlike most store-bought animal meat, although we eat a good deal of store-bought as well.
My cooking triumphs
Chinese steamed fish! I can finally make it to where it tastes very similar to the restaurant version! Woohoo!
My cooking tragedies
Let's just say I'm a hopeful person, and I hate to waste/am lazy, so I've had a handful of recipes that I've used expired baking powder or yeast and came out with pancaked buns or super-dense bread pucks. I usually still eat at least some of it out of guilt before tossing it to the chickens.

Pork Fried Quinoa
This was delicious. Similar to fried rice dishes, I used whatever I had laying around. I substituted leftover turkey bacon for the ham, an inferno pepper (seeded and chopped very fine) instead of bell pepper, and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Otherwise, I followed the directions pretty closely. I definitely would like to make this again.
