About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
Rice. For years from-scratch rice of any kind eluded me, usually turning out mushy and crunchy at the same time. Finally I have beaten the rice demons and can prepare it with confidence, whether it's white, brown, long grain, sushi, Spanish, or something else.
My cooking tragedies
Gravy. I have gravy issues. Every time I attempt it I am unsure how it will turn out. It always tastes good, but it may or may not be thick and lump-free.

Balsamic Bruschetta
THIS WAS SOOOO GOOD. We ate it with grilled chicken, spinach, and feta cheese in as a wrap. Sophisticated, yet even the kids loved it. We will be making this again. We used to buy bruschetta from Sam's Club for $$$, but I was able to make the same amount, that tasted BETTER, for well under half the price.

Classic Fried Rice
Tasty, and close enough to what we love at restaurants that we will be making it again. I did add more seasonings, and tossed in a defrosted package of frozen peas and carrots, but mostly did the recipe as written.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This is our go-to cornbread recipe, and we love cornbread. I can't even count how many times we've made it now, but it's well over 10. The one alteration we make is to use powdered buttermilk instead of the real thing, simply because it's easier to keep powdered buttermilk on hand (it's found near the regular powdered milk in the baking aisle).
