About this Cook
I am married and have two little boys. I don't get a chance to cook as fancy of dishes as I would like, as my boys tend to be a bit picky. We live on a ranch out of town, so I have had to learn to be creative with my recipes. I don't always have the ingredients that I need and a quick trip to the store isn't feasible. I have always considered myself a good cook and more importantly, I enjoy cooking. A dream of mine is to go to culinary school.
My favorite things to cook
One of the things that I like to make is bread. Sometimes I cheat and use my bread machine. I almost always have fresh bread in my kitchen.

Miracle Soup
Pretty tasty soup, and much better than the other "diet" soups. I didn't have bamboo shoots, so I replaced them with sliced water chestnusts and they give a nice crisp crunch to the soup. I also replaced the garlic, ginger, and red pepper with 2 tbsp. of garlic/ginger/pepper paste that I had in my fridge. I took another reviewers advise and used kale instead of spinach. Next time, I will add the kale at the same time as the frozen veggies, as it takes a little while to get tender. All said, it is a nice and easy soup recipe.

We Be Jammin' Jamaican Banana Bread
I really thought that with the rum and lime, this was going to be an amazing banana bread. It was just o.k. The flavours were more pronounced the second day. The topping was really good. I think that this would have been better if it was baked in a cake pan and then double the topping.

Cranberry Sauce Chicken II
Wonderful. It keeps everybody guessing what's in the sauce. One note - I don't ususally have Russian salad dressing, so I use mayo instead.
