About this Cook
My husband and I love to go on week-end adventures with our dog Sunni.. where I take photos. We've traveled coast to coast but the Grand Canyon is my favorite.
My favorite things to cook
I love allrecipes, and trying the different recipes, and find the reviews very helpful. I try them out on my husband and very few have gotten a thumbs down.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up learning "down home cooking" since moving to Arizona learning and liking Mexican cuisine.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for two can be a challenge but the calculate section helps...

Chocolate Cheesecake I
My first cheesecake, turned out beautiful. No cracks I used 1 pkg. of oreo cookies for the crust, twisted them apart and scraped the frosting (chocolate) saved that to ice graham crackers (childhood thing) added 2 Tab of cocoa powder with the mini chocolate chips to make more chocolaty. Sprinkled remainder of chips on top before baking. Was very nervous about the water bath, So I followed another reader and placed a 9x13 pan of water on the rack below the cheesecake, still nervous so I placed a jelly roll pan under the cheesecake and placed just enough water in that pan to come just up to the bottom of cheesecake. After baking and then turning off the oven left it in the oven for two hours. Let it finish cooling on the counter. Then to the freezer, next morning took it out of the pan, sliced it wrapped each piece in plastic wrap and back to the freezer. With only 2 of us, this way keeps us from eating the whole thing. And it freezes well, my husband actually likes to eat it frozen!

Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings
This is a great recipe kept trying different wing recipes hate the mess with frying but this recipe does give you crispy wings. Some I sprinkled with salt and vinegar seasoning some tossed with buffalo sauce before baking the possibilities are endless. The seasoning in the parboil is perfect for any wings.
