About this Cook
Cooking is what I have to do to feed the large humans who live with me. If I didn't have to cook for people, I likely wouldn't even bother getting very creative. But since I like doing things well, I take my cooking quite seriously.
My favorite things to cook
None of it. I cook because otherwise my family would starve.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not many. I come from a family that thinks a little basil means spicy.
My cooking triumphs
I get a full dinner on the table every single night and they almost always rave on how good it is. I shy away from nothing. We eat a lot of exotic foods and the family favorite is Indian. This is a huge improvement. Husband #1 always said I was a terrible cook and he'd actually throw his food if he didn't like it.
My cooking tragedies
Very few. Follow directions.

Black Bean, Sausage, and Sweet Potato Soup
It was okay but not really great. It's visually a little weird, but the flavors are good enough. It seemed to lack a bit of oomph. The first word out of the family's mouth was, "It's missing something." Then my son put hot sauce on it to make it a bit better. With three teens I seldom have leftovers of anything, but this had plenty. And we all opted for PB&J rather than eat leftovers for lunch.

Turkish Coffee Ice Cream
I'm not sure why, but this wasn't all that good. Too sweet, I think. And the cream felt heavy and stuck on the roof of my mouth. It wasn't refreshing and yummy like most ice creams, rather it was sicky sweet and cloying. But the flavor itself was really good. (I mean, how can you go, cream, sugar...yum.) Overcome the proportion and texture issues and this might have promise.

Blue Cheese, Bacon and Pear Brunch Sandwiches
This is decent in taste, but nothing special like I was expecting. If you hate blue cheese, this won't have enough "yum" to overcome that. It's almost bland, to be honest. Would be better with a spread or sauce or something to tie the flavors together. I'm a major fan of all these flavors, but having them together didn't make magic like I'd hoped.
