About this Cook
I love to cook but I'm not good at making things up as I go. I like to follow recipes step by step the first time I make them, then the second time I can sometimes change it up a bit.
My favorite things to cook
I love making dessert :) It's just so rewarding because everyone loves it.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make a dessert that called for one package of koolaid. Well... that one package just seemed so small to me so I put in 2 packages! Twice the goodness right? WRONG! This turned out tasting horrible :P So bad in fact that my family asked me to never make this again even though I said next time I would only use the 1 package the recipe called for. Oh well :) That is why now I stick to the recipe 100% the first time I make something new.

Cheddar Baked Chicken
I give it 4 stars because I changed a few things and I don't like when people give 5 stars after making changes! I left out the cereal because that didn't appeal to us. Instead I used A LOT more cheese (around 2 cups) and slightly more breadcrumbs to coat the chicken. It causes messy fingers when making but it comes together real quick and easily. We followed the recipe exactly otherwise. I prepared a few hours early and put it in the fridge until time to bake. I used one Quorn veggie "Chick'n" for me and just placed it in the center with the real chicken surrounding it. I loved my veggie chicken. My husband and friends said the real chicken was yummy, flavorful, and juicy. They loved it too. Serve with any kind of rice, veggies, and biscuits!

Caramel Brownies III
These were so yummy! I put a few extra chocolate chips because I had some gaps and figured - who doesn't love extra chocolate chips! Some tips: - Prepare cake mix first and put in pan, but don't cook just yet. Caramel takes forever to melt! Put cake in when caramel is about 10 minutes from melted b/c if caramel sits too long I found it starts to harden. - Refrigerate before cutting as per directions. They will still be gooey but will cut easily. Just be careful when transporting them to a plate. - Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Chicken and Potato Parcels
This is a great template for any mix of veggies / sauce and chicken. I didn't peel the potatoes, we like the peels. I did pre-cook my potatoes in the microwave for 5 mins with a little water per another review. Then we foiled a cookie sheet and cooked it in the oven @ 350 for 1 hour. It came out perfect and was easier than making packets. I can see us adding in different veggies or trying different sauces but over all it was easy! We used Sweet Baby Rays and it was mmm mmm good :)
