About this Cook
I'm a bit of a foodie (thank you Food Network) and love to try new things.
My favorite things to cook
Everything, though I'm not a huge fan of baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year I make a huge meal for my family of 5 and any stray people without family in the area for Thanksgiving. I love it, but I'm usually put off cooking for a month or so afterward so we go out for Brunch on every Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
A spectacular milk braised herbed pork loin, trash-can chicken (don't ask,) braised ox-tails and my own creation of "Dinner in a Pumpkin."
My cooking tragedies
Way too many to count. Being adventurous isn't always a good thing. Fortunately I've got a husband that eats whatever is put in front of him with a smile...I married a saint!

Blue Cranberry Sauce
My husband, the blueberry nut, really loved it, said it would be great on ice cream. I thought it was okay, too sweet for my tastes.

Fusion Chili
GREAT recipe! I did make a few changes based on my own tastes and at the suggestion of other reviewers. I cut the honey down to 1/4 cup, I also substituted a cup of strong coffee and a bottle of dark beer (a porter) for the wine as I don't think wine has any business in something as earthy as chili and as the recipe was becoming a bit too thick. I also omitted a few veggies I didn't have handy. Will definitely make again!
