About this Cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
Haven't started any yet, but looking forward to making some with our new family.
My cooking triumphs
I guess as long as its edible its a triumph? lol
My cooking tragedies
I have one that my husband still pokes fun at me about. I tried making spaghetti way back when my husband and I were still dating. I wanted it to be a little spicy since I strongly dislike sweet tomato based sauces. Being a totally inexperienced cook and underestimating its potency, I added 2 huge tablespoons of Dave's Insanity sauce to the tomato sauce... There were atomic fumes coming off of it. Anyone who attempted to eat it would end up with their eyes and mouths on fire. In an effort to spare the family of eating this disaster (and hurting my feelings), my husband sneaked it outside and dumped it out in backyard. It killed the grass.

Buffalo Chicken Chili
I used cubed chicken breast instead of ground chicken and cooked it in butter. I was all out of Frank's Red Hot so I used Sriracha Hot Chili sauce and it tastes phenomenal!

Coffee Jelly
This is DELICIOUS. I used extra bold french roast, and once the jelly was set, just some Belgian chocolate coffee creamer. I sprinkled a little cocoa powder on top. I could it this whole bowl in one sitting!
