About this Cook
I'm a young cook, but I have a huge passion for it! I love to try new recipes and collect all of them for the day I have a family of my own to cook for! I can't wait until the day I get to plan all the family meals! And I hope to always have a dessert on hand for when guests stop by.
My favorite things to cook
Since I have a sweet tooth like none other, desserts are probably at the top of my list to try! However, I still enjoy trying to cook just about anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge Holiday meals! Mom was great at cooking for 100, when 10 guests were invited. I love that: enjoying cooking so much you go way overboard!
My cooking triumphs
Lol- just yesterday when I found a pumpkin roll recipe I could make flawlessly! After the last time I tried one (about 2 years ago) I thought I was doomed to failure with them and should never try again! But I did and it was AMAZING!! I plan to make tons more and give them as Christmas gifts!
My cooking tragedies
There are quite a few. Fortunately, there used to be a lot more than now (I'm getting better!!!). However, I did have one a few weekends ago when I learned the hard way, there's a difference in pasteurized eggs and the eggs I brought home from the store... Sad day! But a lesson I'll never forget :)

Baked Dijon Salmon
This is absolutely amazing! There are many different flavors here, and together they are delicious! I would add I can't imagine how this dish could be described as bland- to my husband and I it was extremely flavorful! I printed multiple salmon dishes to try, and I decided to start with this one. I will also finish this one, this will be the way I make salmon from now on!

Microwave Corn on the Cob
When I got this recipe yesterday in my email I never thought I would use it. Until today (an entire day later :) ), my boss gave me some sweet corn from a local farm. By noon I couldn't wait to try it, so with only a microwave at work I cleaned it, wrapped it in a paper towel for 2 minutes and WOW!! An excellent way to make corn on the cob, just as good as boiling, only easier, faster, and less mess!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd
This is a great recipe/ idea. The bacon cooks perfectly. The entire house does not stink of bacon grease for the rest of the day! Finally, clean up is a breeze as you just remove alum foil and wash the baking sheet (instead of having to scrub relentless grease splatters!). Thank you for this!
