About this Cook
I am 40 years old, and I don't know a thing about cooking. I'm the kind of person who sets the kitchen on fire when attempting to boil water (true story!)
My favorite things to cook
I suppose I'll find out soon!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both of my parents worked very hard outside the home to support me and my siblings. Cooking wasn't really part of the equation. We ate lots of hot dogs, hamburgers, and frozen pizza.
My cooking tragedies
Hah! I have destroyed more pots than I have saved. I have a terrible habit of putting something on the stove, then getting distracted until the smoke alarm goes off.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
I combined all ingredients except the pecans and yogurt, and left everything in the slow cooker on low for 6 hours. Added garnish in the morning and it was DELICIOUS!

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa
I followed the recipe exactly, and could not have been more pleased with the results. The rub for the tuna and the salsa had the perfect amount of heat, and the mango made for a terrific and interesting contrast. This dish had so much flavor that we kept the sides very simple - steamed broccoli and brown rice...what a delicious meal!

World's Best Lasagna
This is a fantastic recipe. For those that like it spicy, I recommend using hot Italian sausage instead of sweet.
