About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything. I like finding great, unique meals at restaurants, then trying to re-create them at home. I'm working on perfecting a few that I hope to add to this site soon!
My cooking triumphs
When my 2 sons were babies, I made all of their baby food. They each had maybe 2 or 3 jars of gerber jarred food their entire lives. It was all fresh, homemade food! To this day, I haven't cooked anything that has given me that level of pride and satisfaction.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not one to cook desserts (or eat them). A few years back, I decided to give it a shot so I could take something to a family Thanksgiving dinner. I went right for a tough one and chose to make swirled cheesecake with homemade cookie crust. I spent hours and hours working on making my first cheesecake (or any dessert) attempt perfect. It came out just like the picture on the recipe. It was perfect to the point that I was compelled to take pictures of it. When putting it into the fridge for the night, I bumped a stack of plastic food containers and knocked 2 of them into the cheesecake making very large dents in the swirled top of my cheesecake. It still tasted great and I at least have a picture, but I was more than a little upset.

Sensational Slow Cooked Beef Brisket
This will now be my go to recipe for brisket. Very good! I was worried about the amount of Worcestershire in the recipe, but I stuck to what it called for and it came out great. I would recommend this recipe to anyone and would not change a thing. The hardest part about making this recipe is smelling it all day and not digging into it before it is done!

Incredibly good! I've made this recipe a few times and have gotten better results using 3 TBS plain yogurt instead of milk. It makes excellent naan either way. My 9 yr old son asked me to just make naan for dinner (nothing else). The recipe as is makes a lot. Any leftovers freeze well.
