About this Cook
There isn't a lot about me, I am pretty basic. I have a son who is my inspiration and my world. I spend a lot of time with my family and cooking for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything, if its new and different, I want to try it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There aren't any cooking traditions in my family. In fact I am the only one other than my boyfriend that really knows how to cook. My mother and father never cooked when I was a child, the only one that did was my grandmother but she did not teach me, I am self-taught.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook is a triumph for me in general and I am very proud of what I have learned and continue to improve and embrace it.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any tragedies yet, I am sure they are to come but so far I focus so much on not screwing it up that I do pretty well.

Hamburger Casserole
It is very good but I altered it because of the reviews I read, the original way may be a bit bland. Instead of noodles I had mexican style rice, I added colby jack cheese, instead of regular skinless diced tomatoes I substituted stewed tomatoes which gave it more flavor. I also added some corn chips on top to give it a bit of texture. Then when I served it I added a dallop of sour cream. Made it a lot more flavorful and a bit spicier. :)

Creamy Rice Pudding
Very good, but if there is some left and refrigerate it then it can get a little bland so nutmeg can make it taste a bit better.

Italian Style Pot Roast
Very good. My 3 year old loved it and he is a very picky eater. Meat was nice and tender as well. Next time I will use a crock pot though.
