About this Cook
In my younger days I was a server at few upscale restaurants. I was very interested in cooking and spent a lot of time hanging out in the kitchen when ever I could. The servers made quite a bit more money then the chefs otherwise I might have pursued my cooking interest.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food is my favorite. I love the smell of the crock pot simmering on a stormy Minnesota day. Cake is another favorite that I make way too often!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are a few things I can count on in my life. One of them is the chicken sandwiches that my Grandmother made for summer birthday parties. Another is Christmas Eve at my Mother's. Hot roast beef sandwiches, tacos, lasagna, cheese dips, meatballs, crackers, chips, and various cookies and desserts. There is always something for anyone's taste. You never know who may show up even people that you have never met before!
My cooking triumphs
Authentic Mexican food! I can really pull off some wonderful things after living in Arizona for 8 years, even for a girl that is as white as snow! I LOVE hot, spicy food!
My cooking tragedies
My first turkey. I left the bag of giblets in the neck cavity....not in the "main" cavity where the stuffing goes but in under the flap of skin at the top of the neck. No one had ever told me that they put giblets in TWO places in a raw turkey! Who knew!

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin
I really liked how light it was. The pork turned out so tender! Not like the dried up chewy pork from take-out. I will make this again. I did stray from the recipe and added bell pepper, carrot, and onion with the pineapple.

Chef John's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Simple, pure, unadulterated chicken soup. Full disclosure - I added about a TBL of "Better Than Bullion" to the broth instead of salt as well as about a TBL of lemon juice after I took it off the heat.
