About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My cooking triumphs
- My first Thanksgiving cooking by myself, 2010: Turkey, twice baked potatoes, corn on the cob, green been casserole, candied yams, and pecan & pumpkin pies from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
- Caught the stove on fire at 16 attempting to boil water - Mixed up some recipes on Thanksgiving and ended up putting 2c of flour in my pecan pie filling. It came out like dry, floury coffee cake. Still hearing about that.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf
Since making this recipe, my family won't go back to beef meatloaf! It's now part of the weekly rotation. Everyone who first tries it says, "Ew, TURKEY meatloaf?" But after that first bite they're hooked. I usually add some Worcestershire sauce to the mix for flavor, and sprinkle with basil when it comes out of the oven. Perfect!!

Toffee Crunch Cookies
Flat, bland, unexciting. Made these for coworkers and they came out so terrible I was too embarrassed to bring them. I'm no chef but I havent had a cookie recipe flop like this in years. I would MUCH rather just eat a heath bar. A tip if you do make them: 12 minutes gave me a batch of black cookies, 10 minutes and they were still too overdone. 8-9 minutes is what "worked" for me.

Best Brownies
Way better than box mix! I always double the recipe and use a 9x13 shiny metal pan. Not sure if it's because of the doubling or not, but the frosting always seems way too thick to spread, so I add a couple tablespoons of extra butter and a tablespoon or so of vegetable oil (as needed). After they cool I sprinkle finely chopped walnuts on one half, cut them up and try to give away as many as possible as fast as I can because I always seem to gain a pound or two if I'm left alone too long with them!
