About this Cook
I am a 22-year-old stay-at-home mommy of 2. I married my highschool honey and we've been together 6 years. I have loved to cook since I was 5 or 6, and started cooking entrees and sides when I was 8 or 9. I started planning, preparing, and cooking holiday and family meals when I was 12. I cook everyday, whether it's a meal or just a snack.
My favorite things to cook
I love to recreate restaurant and store-bought favorites. I like cooking chinese and mexican food the most, but I also enjoy creating my own marinades, mixes, rubs, sauces, etc. Anything to cut out preservatives and that ever-expensive middle man. I am the constant pursuit of a sure-fire copycat recipe for Shakey's mojos and Casa Ole red sauce (salsa).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I host Thanksgiving every year, and prepare most of the meal since I am picky eater and VERY particular about food handling. I host an annual cookie swap, as well. And I love potlucks.
My cooking triumphs
I have FINALLY created the perfect recipes for: Broccoli Chicken stir-fry Italian Meatballs Cinnamon Cheesecake Pizza Homemade Fresh Salsa Homemade shelf-stable Pickled Okra Homemade refrigerator Dill Pickles and Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies
My cooking tragedies
Candy-making is my least strong suit, as I live in very-humid Texas... I have had many candy disasters.

Strawberry Jam
this as fantastic! I reduced the sugar, like other reviewers, and had to boil a little longer than usual to get it to the jell point. it still turned out a little softer than store-bought or pectin jams, but I prefer it soft. it spreads much better on toast/sandwiches when soft. I pureed my mixture athe end s there were no chunks, then strained out the seeds. my 2 oldest kids looooved this jam, and my 5-year-old told me I'm not allowed to but jam anymore because this is the best, and I agree! I'm using this same recipe tomorrow but using peaches in place of strawberries- thanks for such a perfect and versatile recipe! can't wait to try with other berries/ston fruits!

Sugar Cookie Icing
PERFECT ICING! I started out using only 1 tsp milk because I live in humid Texas, and ended up adding the other tsp to make a stiff icing. I used it to pipe my edges, then added an additional 1 tsp to the leftover icing to make it "flooding" consistency. My first try ever and my cookies look professional! I tried one batch with lemon juice instead of milk and vanilla instead of almond, and it was KILLER! thank you so much! love this recipe!
