About this Cook
By day I am a public school teacher so my time at home is limited and precious. I have two cooking personalities - one for the weekend and one during the week. During the week I cook either quick meals or meals that can be prepped ahead of time; but on the weekends I love to spend more time in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I now make my fiance's grandmothers dressing during the holidays. He doesn't cook nor does his mother, so I sat down with her and got her recipe as she told it to me. Other than that, I tend to not make the same recipes each holiday season because there are so many good recipes out there that I don't want to limit myself.
My cooking tragedies
If it can be messed up, I have probably done it; but I try not to do it in front of a lot of people. Cooking is science with food so if I don't mess up, I'm not being creative.

Totally Tangy Baked French Fries
Very good! It's easy to adjust the heat level depending on what you like (we like mild heat). Excellent as lunch the next day, too! As another person did, we used Ranch dressing as a dip.

Apple Turnovers
The family loves these but I'm not a huge fan of desserts that feature apples. My only suggestion is to bake these on parchment paper or a silpat.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)
My whole family really liked this cake - and I liked that it wasn't full of fat and useless carbs! Loved the texture - less greasy and heavy than a brownie, but lighter and more fudgey than a cake. I did make a few additions, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Being picky, I cooked dried garbanzo beans because they have a nuttier taste than the canned beans. My additions are the following: I did not add salt to the beans while they cooked, so I had to add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the bean and egg mixture. For a richer flavor, I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the bean mixture and I added 1 teaspoon of espresso powder to the chocolate while it was melting.
