Chocolate Scotcheroos
About this Cook
I'm a student, so I don't get to cook as often as I'd like. I lean more towards the recipes that are quick and easy - fortunately the ones I have found here have turned out great!
My favorite things to cook
I eat just about anything, so I cook anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love my mom's mashed potatoes, my dad's chowder, my grandma's chili, and my grandpa's fish.
My cooking triumphs
I don't know about triumphs... the chocolate scotcheroos I found on this site were much loved by my friends and family, and I made some delicious stuffed mushrooms (another AllRecipes find) recently. as a student I don't have much time to try triumph...
My cooking tragedies
there's a family legend about the time I made cookies as a young child - I was just learning how to cook and thoroughly enjoying baking. I made a batch of kiss cookies - the drop kind with the hershey's in the middle? somehow I managed to substitute salt for sugar and wound up with a gross tasting but aesthetically pleasing batch. the thrill was, knowing the cookies were horrid, and giving them to the adults in the family and laughing hysterically as they spit out the salty deception. classic.

Chocolate Scotcheroos
these are great. turned out a bit hard, but were worth the effort - the taste was great. I think next time I'll follow other users' suggestions of taking the mix off the heat getting it situated right away. hard or not, the taste was great! easy too.

Dinah's Stuffed Mushrooms
these are fabulous. made them for a holiday party that was canceled, but was perfectly happy to sit at home and eat them with friends - 2 of whom 'don't do mushrooms' and another who 'doesn't do fish' - all 3 ate these and raved about them.

Simple Southwestern Chicken Salad
this was a great, alternative to the classic chicken salad... I modified the recipe to fit what I had laying around the house but it still turned out great. put it on a flour tortilla with lettuce, shredded cheese, and some mild taco sauce (my boyfriend prefers hot sauce so that's what he used)... we loved it!
