About this Cook
I discovered AR during my college years. I've grown as a cook thanks to the wonderful members of AR and their recipes! Most of my reviews on here are positive, mainly because I read reviews first before trying a recipe. Most of the time the reviewers are right! However, if I totally change a recipe with all of the tweaking then I never bother writing a review since it is now a brand new recipe!!
My favorite things to cook
I love recipes that let you set it and forget it. This is why I love the slow cooker and baking or any recipes involving simmering.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make mac and cheese for almost every holiday. My family and my husband's really seem to enjoy my mac and cheese and it is usually requested. It has definitely become a tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say, whenever I make fish it always comes out sooo good. I've never made a bad fish dinner. My husband and I refuse to eat fish out anymore because we always agree that I could have done better!
My cooking tragedies
Hands down the first time I made meatloaf! I looooove meatloaf but my first attempt was awful. I had no idea what I was doing and it actually came out with too much breadcrumbs and worst of all it wasn't cooked all the way. I had to cut it up and throw it back in the oven. (I should mention that now I make an awesome meatloaf thanks to modifying and condensing multiple recipes!)

Minnesota Broccoli Salad
This was pretty good. It was different. I followed the recipe with the only exception of only having a white onion. If/when I make this again I will probably do less onion, it was a little overwhelming for me. However, my mom and husband liked this a lot.

Famous Chicken Adobo
This was really good. We always use low-sodium and I usually add some water just to tame it down.

White Bread For The Bread Machine
This is by far the best bread machine recipe I have found. I learned that I hate bread machine crusts so, I put mine on the light setting and took it right out of the pan when it is done. Thanks!!
