About this Cook
I really dont know how to cook. I try to follow recipes and not screw up along the way.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles because its lots of things mixed together to make one big thing. I can get down with that.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can make the hell out of a kolache. We have a secret family recipe i have never seen, and refuse to give up.
My cooking triumphs
I learned to use cheap ingredients when i try something for the first time so i dont spend 30 dollars for a sucky recipe.
My cooking tragedies
I spent over 30 dollars on a sucky recipe.

Brunch Egg Bake
Nothing special going on here. Very heavy and has that boring every casserole flavor. I found this to be rather bland and in need of some other seasonings to make it stand out. Too much cheese. There are much better and more flavorful egg casseroles out there.

Maple Salmon
Great recipe. It is basically teriyaki flavored when all is said and done. Dont use fake "maple" pancake syrup. Grade D real maple syrup works fine. I only marinated for like 5 minutes then used the excess sauce as a glaze. Didnt turn over. Baked for about 15 minutes then swapped to broiler like someone else suggested for 3-5 minutes after spoonong over any sauce dripping. Came out awesomely.

Chicken Puffs
Filling tastes great alone. The crescent dough ruins it and makes this overly rich and bland . If I made again I would roll the dough thinner and maybe add more garlic or hatch peppers to the chicken mixture.... it also took me about 27 minutes on 325 to get these browned due to dough thickness.
