About this Cook
My mother started teaching me to cook at 5. My grandmother then taught me more advanced cooking. When I was about 12 years old my mother got frustrated with my brother and father and decided to stop cooking. I had to cook more or be hungry. I just couldn't stand "microwave meals". I absolutely love trying new recipes and adding my own twist to them.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything with onions! I enjoy finding new ways to cook vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fridays are our "fun food" nights. We usually do finger foods or our treats/not so healthy meals on Fridays and then watch a movie together.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked for a group of 40 to rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked a turkey upside down (major mistake, yet not the first time I had cooked a turkey) and it took about 3 hrs longer than it should have and had a very odd texture.

Dishpan Cookies I
I decided to make these and I did not pay attention to the fact it makes a small truckload of cookies! Guess my neighbors will be getting some. :-) I did not use the pecans (allergies) or the coconut, I did add some raisins and slightly crushed the cornflakes (measured them out, put them in a bowl and used the measuring cup to crush them up some - didn't want crumbs though) and the cookies turned out fantastic!! They are a very sweet cookie and you would never know there is no butter in these. These would be great with chocolate chips too. I also made them in two different sizes, 2" and a smaller 1 1/2". I used a scoop but this is just as easy to use your hands with as well. They also don't spread out too much. Next time, I'll just pay attention to how many it makes!

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs
Sorry but I cooked these EXACTLY as stated and they still had the green on the outside of the yolks and were very hard to peel.

Corn Chowder with Sausage
This was VERY tasty! It is not a super thick chowder (which I typically prefer) but I really enjoyed the consistency anyway. I added chicken bullion and carrots in with the potatoes and use 2 cans of creamed corn and 1 small can of kernel corn (I think the kernel corn gives an extra texture). I followed the suggestion of adding some flour to my sausage and onions and I really don't feel like it was necessary. This is a very good recipe and doesn't need a bunch of changes. I really love finding a recipe that is nice and EASY!
