About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I've learned the hard way that the old maxim "If you cook, you have to look" is absolutely true.

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes
Excellent recipe! Hardest part was to wait at least 45 minutes as the recipe says. I knew I would be eating a lot of these because of the prior reviews, so I doubled the recipe the first time. The pancakes were fluffy, tender, and extremely flavorful. I will be using this recipe again without any changes!

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
I looked at this recipe and saw over-reliance on spices, not preparation to allow a good base to integrate the spices. I started by making my own base, mixing 1/2 lb ground pork with 1lb ground beef and 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground fennel, and 1 tsp ground sage to create a full 1.5 lbs of pork/beef sausage. After this was finished, I drained it and added it to the slow cooker. I added 2 tsps olive oil and added 1/2 cup red red wine, 4 minced garlic cloves, 2 onions, 1 stalk of celery, and 1 carrot. When that had softened, I added that to slow cooker as well and sort of followed the original recipe, skipping the Italian seasoning, but keeping to the rest. It was very good after these different changes.

Indian Chicken Curry II
I have made it twice and my family loves it. Much better than some restaurants at which I tried a similar dish. Very complex spices, although Cayenne is a Western spice it really doesn't "hurt" the overall flavor of the dish.
