About this Cook
About 3 years ago I didn't know anything about cooking but I had to learn when I moved in with my boyfriend. I realized that I absolutely LOVE cooking and I enjoy trying something new almost everyday. I follow recipes the first time but I have discovered my own tastes and like to add/subsistute things depending on my tastes, or if I want to achieve a slightly different flavor.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy making homemade soups and stews. I also love seafood and enjoy cooking some type of fish atleast 3 times a month.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking and/or baking anything with my Nana. She is the best cook in the family and she taught me to bake at a young age. She is by far the best grandma in the world and I love her and cherish her dearly <3
My cooking triumphs
I wanted to bring something homemade to a christmas party at one of my boyfriends aunts house. It was my first time ever bringing something I prepared and I was really nervous. I had a recipe for baked beans that I doctored up a bit and added a few things to suit my taste and let the beans simmer until we left. It was the first food item eaten and there wasn't any leftovers. I still get compliments on those beans! It was enough to make me realize I could be a great cook and I am glad I continued because I love cooking.
My cooking tragedies
Ha! The first time I ever made dinner for my boyfriend I chose to make meatloaf. I followed the recipe exactly or so I thought! I didn't season the meat at all, not even salt, pepper, nothing! My boyfriend was so sweet, he still ate it and told me that it was wonderful even when I heard him gagging =-D He's a sweet heart! We joke about that now and he tells me that I have turned out to be a great cook. (almost better than his mom)

Crazy Chocolate Cake
I had long forgotten about this cake! My nana used to tell stories of making this when she was younger and she made this when I was very young. I made it lastnight and told my boyfriends mom about it and she was almost in tears. (her late mom used to make it) I added extra cocoa as well as shredded chocolate bar to the batter (no choc. chips) and it turned out wonderful. I'm just one of those people that loves the taste of this cake! It's perfect =-) I will be making it a lot now!!
