About this Cook
I am a teacher by day and a self-labeled food junkie always! I love to eat good food and find it fun and exciting to be able to create things that taste good to me. I also enjoy being active and being outside unless it is rediculously hot. I attended Ohio State and am a HUGE Buckeye fan!! I'm new to being a member of allrecipes but have been enjoying searching around for good recipes for a long time now. My favorite thing about cooking is experimenting with flavors and ingredients, and I rarely follow a recipe to a T.
My favorite things to cook
I love vegetables and really like finding new ways to prepare them! I also love ANYTHING with cheese, cream cheese, or sour cream in it!! Desserts with fresh fruit are some of my favs as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger I spent a lot of summers with my grandma, a very much home cooker and baker. I LOVED watching her cook and helping eat everything she made! Her pumpkin pie and butter bean casserole were always my favorites.
My cooking triumphs
I'm hoping to tackle a live lobster soon - that will certainly be my personal triumph! At this point, something I pride myself on lately is using all the fresh produce in the house before it goes bad.
My cooking tragedies
I somehow always seem to burn toast! Always!!!

Sweet Potato Latkes
Great recipe! I, too, tweeked it some - we like spicy at my house, so I added about 3/4 teaspoon (adjust to your liking)of cayenne pepper and about 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Delish! I let them really crisp up and they were great. I also served them with sour cream which is nice with the extra kick of spicyness. I will definitly be making these again!
