About this Cook
I am a freelance writer living in Texas, and I love to experiment with new recipes! I cook for my boyfriend and me every weekend, and I find most of my recipes on!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking (sweets especially) more than anything. I am still trying to figure out how to fix a good piece of meat without overcooking it.
My cooking triumphs
Made some delicious Chilean sea bass, though I think part of the success was the quality of the fish itself. You get what you pay for! I also have a brownie recipe (nope! no sharing!) that I am famous for -- no one has the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Just made a breakfast casserole that was too eggy; made a goat cheese dressing that was not very good (and I love goat cheese), though the worst was a filet mignon from Wal-Mart. Again, you get what you pay for. It was awful. Bless my bf's heart, he ate it and said he liked it. I think he's a keeper. ;)

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake
I didn't think it had a lot of flavor, and wasn't crazy about it. However, my boyfriend loved it, so go figure!

My margaritas have always been awful, and that's sad, considering I'm from Texas. Never did like the cloying taste of bottled margarita mix. This recipe, however, is wonderful. Also, a bartender made some suggestions on what you could add to make it even better, which I did -- cointreau, OJ, a can of diet 7-up, and oddly? A bit of rum.
