About this Cook
I would call myself a bored foodie. I am so tired of food; nothing sounds good these days-- so I'm constantly on allrecipes, looking for something exciting! I cook daily for my husband and my toddler, both of whom will eat whatever I cook. We try to eat only whole foods, keeping everything packaged and processed to a minimum!
My favorite things to cook
I'm just now getting into baking, so I'm having fun with that. I cook a lot of soups, a lot of mexican-inspired dishes, and just about anything with LOTS of veggies in it!
My cooking triumphs
I've always been afraid of baking, because it seems so precise. I can COOK just about anything on the stovetop, because I throw in ingredients as I please. Baking, however, intimidated me. Recently, though, I tinkered with a recipe to suit our tastes, and still turned out some fabulous muffins. :)

Black Friday Pie
I did this (pretty much) last year, and am looking forward to doing it again this afternoon. My recipe is a little different, and may help the reviewer that mentioned she'd have liked the potatoes to be a little crustier. I put the stuffing in the bottom for the crust, and then did the potatoes on top (sort of like a Shepherd's Pie). Also, all of our green beans always get eaten (I use the Green Beans and Cherry Tomatoes recipe here), so I usually throw in a bag of frozen mixed veggies. It's all a great combo!

Tiramisu Layer Cake
I made this for my husband's birthday, and he loved it. I made my own white cake, instead of using a boxed mix (we don't do packaged stuff), and had to make my own mascarpone because I couldn't find any in my area. The results were great, though. Even over the next few days, as it got soggier and soggier in the refrigerator, it just got better and better! ;)

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce
We followed the recipe as written, and it was VERY good! I wish I'd scaled down the recipe, though, because I was making it for just two of us, and it didn't save very well!
