About this Cook
I avoided cooking most of my life, and it turns out I love it. Grocery shopping is so fun and I love menu planning. I'm obsessed with cookbooks and I love looking at old recipes (anyone ever heard of watergate salad)?
My favorite things to cook
The recipes my grandma, mom, and aunt have made! I want to replicate them all but with my own twist.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A slew of cookies at Christmas. Lollipop cookies for special occasions (like my wedding!). And trying to keep my food healthy while still tasting fun.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a homemade apple pie (crust and all) under my mom's watchful eye. My dad said it tasted just like hers!
My cooking tragedies
50% of the time I bread anything (meat, chicken, fish) it turns out soggy. And I still don't know what happened to the apple coffee cake...

Buttermilk Pancakes II
This is from someone who only made pancakes once before (from a premade mix) and burned them. This was a fantastic recipe. The buttermilk adds a dense feel that you get from the mega pancakes at breakfast restaurants. As long as you don't stir the batter too much, they turn out fluffy as well. Can't stress enough how important it is to leave those flour clumps in. I left the buttermilk, eggs, and milk sitting out for 40 minutes like another reviewer suggested, which worked well.

Salsa Chicken
I didn't have a taco seasoning packet, so I used a southwest seasoning blend from Penzy's line up. This recipe turned out great!
