About this Cook
I am a student, a coworker, a girlfriend, a daughter, and a sister. I have finally found my balance. I can work, go to school, and cook tasty, healthy meals for Gary and myself.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love trying new things. While cooking isn't new to me, I am still a recipe creating, menu planning, gourmet cooking newb.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have a cooking tradition. When I eat with my family, we just take turns cooking. Gary would say that the cooking tradition is that I cook for him every night.
My cooking triumphs
I impressed the future in-laws!
My cooking tragedies
It was the first Christmas with an ex-boyfriend. His father is diabetic, and I wanted to make a diabetic cheesecake. I had the recipe, and I was so excited. It called for artificial sweeter that does not contain aspartame. Well, apparently I missed the "no aspartame" part. It was dessert time, and I brought the cheesecake from the fridge. His dad tried it. Mid chew, he stops, spits it out and grabs a drink. It was disgusting! You'd think I would try it first to make sure it came out okay. It did make for a good laugh. :)

Creamy Irish Potato Soup
I've made this recipe before, and it was fantastic. My mother in law made a variation of this same recipe. It was DELICIOUS! She added bacon (because my husband insists on meat at every meal), and it was a great touch. She also added sour cream, about a small container's worth.Excellent recipe. Thank you.

Ken's Minestrone Soup
WOW! This was the first word my fiancee said when he tried this! He loves minestrone, and this was the recipe that looked the best to us. He is a hardcore carnivore, so we added ground beef cooked with Worcestershire sauce. I also added a cube of beef bullion to the pot. We just finished the left overs, and I am making another pot tomorrow night. This recipe is fabulous! Thank you for sharing!

Grandma's Homemade Banana Bread
I love this recipe. I've made banana bread before, but this was, by far, the best banana bread recipe. I'm a bread baking newb, and I guess I got a bit confused by the sour milk. I used buttermilk, and about three and a half, almost four bananas, leaving in some big chunks. I made it this morning, it is almost gone, and I will be making more tonight to give to family and friends tomorrow. :)
