About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like experimenting with new ingredients and making new things. I have trouble following recipes, I just kind of use them as outlines or inspiration.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas egg casserole, and mom's Christmas candies.
My cooking triumphs
My best cooking usually happens when groceries are running low and I am forced to be creative. My husband does not qualify ingredients as food, and I have so much fun being creative and serving a delicious healthy meal when no one else can find anything to eat in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
There was this baked french toast recipe that I got off of the label of a jar of preserves. It had about half a jar of blackberry preserves in it, among other things. It was cloyingly sweet, and inedible. I thought it would be easy for when guests came because all of the prep work happened the night before, so it sat in the fridge overnight and baked in the morning. I should have given it a test run before serving it to company. No one ate more than a bite before we decided to go out for breakfast.

Banana Fritters
I substituted whole wheat flour and honey instead of sugar. If you like really sweet you may want to increase the honey to counter the whole wheat flour, but I prefer slightly less sweet and this was perfect. After frying I drizzled more honey and dusted with cinnamon. It eliminates all of the refined sugar and flour, and is still delicious! About as healthy as a donut is going to get!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
really good, but not 10 servings. i doubled the chicken and sauce, and served 4. we didn't make pigs of ourselves tasted bland at first, but i did increase the lime and vinegar just a bit and added some cayenne. also didn't have oregano, so i used thyme. when made into tacos with avocado, tomato, cheese and plain yogurt it was really really good! compliments all around.
