About this Cook
I'm a mom, wife and photographer... in that order.
My favorite things to cook
cheesecake, pepper steak, fried rice, pasta, bread, pizza...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Now tha thte kids are old enough, we try to have one family cooking night where the meal is somehting everyone can help with.
My cooking triumphs
Making a REALLLY AWESOME pot roast. I always preferred my roast on the rotisserie like my mom made it... until I made this pot roast. I couldn't even lift it out of the pan with a fork, it fell apart so easily. Pot roast is now my favorite dinner.
My cooking tragedies
Dumping my son's 10th birthday cake on the couch. At least he got to blow out the candles first.

Guam Fried Rice
My parents had 2 tours on Guam before I was born, then one more when I was 10. My mom had made fried rice this way all of my life, and I never realized it was from Guam. I still make it this way today. We sometimes add leftover ham to this as well.

Bourbon Balls II
This is a scaled down version of what is in my Southern Living cookbook. It's all the same ingredients, just less of each one. Like with what is in my book, I had to add a little more here and there to get the right consistency.

Fabulous French Loaves
For me... this didn't make as good a French bread as it did pizza crust. It's an ok French bread, but it makes an AWESOME pizza crust.
