About this Cook
Married, with 2 kids 11-13 living in St. Petersburg Fl. My Pet Peeve, People who alter a recipe, then rate the recipe. Guess what guys, it's not an accurate rating, as you've just rated your recipe. Not theirs.
My favorite things to cook
It would have to be Peasant Food as its' simple and delicious and great to serve for a crowd. Cajun for their deliciously bold flavors and many one pot meals, and Italian, for their simplistic and delicious rustic style of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My moms homemade easter eggs, that taste like mounds candy bars. My entire family going over to our mom's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas and eating. (40+ of us)
My cooking triumphs
Too many to remember em all.
My cooking tragedies
We were hosting Thanksgiving for the in-laws and my buddy who had never fried a turkey before suggested we fry one, so I bring him a turkey 15 miles away and he cooks it while I stand around and wait. He announces the time is up. I ask, are you sure? it's only been like 75 minutes. He says yes. positive. Ok, I get it home, place it on the serving tray, and cut into it and its bloody and raw in the center. We had to microwave it bits at a time to finish it as everything else was ready to go. Not good.

The Best Oatmeal Cookies
Change Nothing. These are perfect. After 2 days baking, of all the cookies I made, (all 5 star recipes from here) I think this one was my personal favorite, and oatmeal is not my favorite cookies. It really did have a nice blend of sweet and savory, with a great texture. Now that I think about it, they all were delicious. Check your cook times, If you like a toasted crunchy flavor, bake a bit longer if you like a chewy cookie, bake a bit less and let cool on the pan. These ARE NOT "CAKEY Cookies" Listen Reviewers.. if 100 people review something and say its a chewy cookie, and 5 say its a Cakey Cookie, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say, the 5 did something wrong or different. So before I judge a cookie against the grain, I'm going to make doggone sure I'm not the one looking like an idiot. Which means DOUBLE checking my recipe. Did I put too much of one thing and not enough of another? Is my oven too hot or not hot enough? Do I need to adjust my cook times? Am I cooling this on the cookie sheets? Are my cookies more like plum sized rather than walnut sized? I'm amazed by how many people can rate a cookie as awesome and then One reviewer comes in and bashes it and says something totally contrary to what everything else is saying, I know tastes are subjective, but texture? Not quite as much. Bottom line, before you bash a DELICIOUS recipe. Take a second, perhaps the problem is not the recipe, but the cook.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies
Good Basic Peanut Butter Cookie, I was just hoping for bit more peanut butter flavor. I think next time, (They are definitely good enough to give them a second chance) I will add 2 cups of peanut butter and maybe either butter instead of margarine or a bit more vanilla. They were a bit floury for my taste. Definitely shorten the baking times as written unless you like yours crunchy and toasted.
