About this Cook
In high school my mom didn't cook much, so I had to cook my own dinner most nights, but that only meant I got really good at microwaving, and at box mixes, although I did bake often. In college, I almost burnt down our house trying to make grilled chesse, and earned myself a reputation of being a terror in the kitchen. Fast forward to after college, I got a job in a Deli, owned by a woman who is a fantastic cook, and one of my co-workers actually is a Johnson and Wales grad, so the two of them have slowly been teaching me to cook, and about 2 years ago I actually took over the cooking for myself and my hisband who had been doing all the dinners prior to that. I've had some issues, but over the last few months, I've really grown to enjoy cooking, and I look forward to continuing to improve, and finding new things he'll eat! We just got married and I have TONS of new cooking gadgets to play with now. I have a degree in techincal theatre, and I like to work on odd shows here and there in
My favorite things to cook
My husband's family sauce, cheesecake, and cookies and I'm just starting to play with my new bread machine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cooking baking has been a big family tradition, and one of my favorite parts of the holidays, but every excuse my family can up come with for a big meal at the farmhouse is a plus. I can't wait to have a kitchen big enough to start hosting those big family meals myself.
My cooking triumphs
When my boss at the deli, let me bake cookies for the case in the store for the first time. Also when meeting my new father-in-law for the first time, my husband's aunt (his sister-in-law) told him that I was a "fantastic" cook. That was the first time anyone other than my husband or my actors (who don't really count, since they like ANY food that is free) said I was good cook.
My cooking tragedies
The grilled cheese that almost brunt down my college apartment.

Zucchini for Lunch
I didnt find this to be ugly looking at all, in fact I thought it was very pretty looking. I didn't however care for the taste. The favors didn't really blend or go together much, and I found it to be a bit bland, even with the addition of some garlic & black pepper. Not a waste of my ingredients or time, but nothing some craving to have again either.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough
I found this dough very dry and hard to work with, even after adding a bit of olive oil to it. When cooked, this reminded me more of bread, than of a pizza dough. Was something different to try, but not something I'll try again.

Creamy PHILADELPHIA(R) Pasta Primavera
We didn't care for this at all. I found the red pepper to be very overpowering, and the sauce never really thickened. I followed the recipe. Won't be making again.
