About this Cook
I'm a young mother of an infant and student at University of Maine in Orono. My husband and I are both redheads, as well as our little girl.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with garlic, especially meats. My favorite way to cook is pan frying: stirfry, pan-searing, etc. My preference is gas heat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is Irish boiled dinner on St. Patrick's Day: Corned beef, cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes, and celery slow cooked in stout all day.
My cooking triumphs
Meats, especially beef. I'm also great at stirfrying.
My cooking tragedies
Not great at baking. I can do the basics, but definitely no souffles from me.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
Wonderful! I made this for a EcoPeace event at my college, so I lowered the sugar to 2 cups, and added some wheat germ to the mixture used to flour the pans, as well as to the mix itself. I used all whole wheat flour, and added a half tsp. of each to the mix: ground cloves, ginger, allspice, nutmeg. drizzled with vanilla glaze. looked and tasted lovely. thanks for the recipe! will make again!

Twice Baked Cheesy Potatoes
I think that these needed an extreme kick to get them going! I baked red potatoes until done(drop the oven temp down to 250), then scooped them out to 1/4-1/2" thick and set the shells aside. The potato insides i put into a big bowl. Then I fried up 3 bacon slices(I cut them up with my kitchen scissors before i cook them), drained them, and sauteed them for a few more minutes with 3 tbspn minced garlic and some chives. I added this to the potato insides in the bowl, then I added 1 1/2 cp shredded cheese(your choice; I use chedder or colby jack), 1/8th cp ranch dressing, 1/8 cp parm cheese, 1/2 cp sour cream, 1/2 package cream cheese, and some pepper and mashed it all to a pulp. I scoop this mixture heaping back into the shells and top with some decorative cheese and chives for looks, and bake until the cheese melts. Once you try it, you'll never go back! My husband has declared it his favorite dish I've ever made!

Banana Banana Bread
Heavy! It came out very moist! It is a very good base recipe, a little bland. Next time i will add cinnamon, nutmeg, applesauce and Vanilla? not sure yet. My daughter and I both loved the texture!
