About this Cook
I'm a recent college grad and have been cooking since I was about 14, always helped in the kitchen when I was younger.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook random things! I will just put some things together and whip up a delicious concoction! I am a fan of meat dishes, soups and pasta. I really like making gourmet waffles as well. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pot roast hands down is my number one favorite! Next would be cabbage rolls and stuffed bell peppers. My mom makes a wonderful cheesy chicken and rice casserole. We always make holiday cookies together and candies.
My cooking triumphs
Wild game is one of my best! Roasted duck or venison pot roast. mmmm I also like fresh bass or Lake Erie perch, Blue gill/crappie are great fish as well.
My cooking tragedies
I forgot to put onion soup mix in my meat loaf one and it was very bland! The college kids in the dorm where I lived at the time loved it tho. :P I attempted to make homemade bread last year and did not knead the dough long enough.....ended up being a giant dough blob in my oven! :(

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili
This was very easy and tastey! I ended up adding wayyyy more beans! I didnt have kidney beans so I used I can Chili beans, one can of chick peas, one can of pinto beans, a can of black beans and peas n carrots. I also cooked it for an hour and added corn starch at the end of it to thinken it up a bit. Perfect!
