About this Cook
self employed SBO. in my spare time I love to exercise, Cross-fit, walking & biking, work in the yard, decorate, bake, and create new dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, I enjoy the Science behind making the Perfect cookie. also fresh salads are a favorite. Love to roast Veggies, as well as grill them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
coming from a large family, we served roasted dinners family style and loved to grill & picnic on the farm. it was a challenge for me to cook for 2 when I was first married
My cooking triumphs
I'm pretty proud of many recipes, especially an Excellent Chocolate Chip Toffee recipe I feel is perfect. Lasagna, and quick grilled sandwiches
My cooking tragedies
after mastering a microwave peanut brittle, I thought I could save time and make Anise candy the same way but bringing that much sugar to hard crack at that high rate is a tragedy. the perfect Anise candy takes about 45 minutes of stirring ;/

General Tsao's Chicken II
I stir fried the chicken in about 3-4 T oil instead of deep fried my last batch I added fresh brocolli carrots & red pepper strips. I made more sauce: after zesting an entire orange & juiced it. This Was an Amazing Dinner!

Cinnamon Apple Pie Bars
I rolled out the pastry onto parchment paper and just laid it into the pan. I mixed about 2-3 T of softened butter with the apples. then rolled out the top pastry onto more parchment paper and transfered onto the mix. slightly pinched edges together. then I brushed on a little egg-wash and sprinkled sugar & cinnamon on top. Instead of all white sugar I used half brown & half white. still used the icing for the top :)
