Me with Alton Brown
About this Cook
Love to cook for the holidays and a house full of people. My mother was my greatest cooking influence.
My favorite things to cook
Chili is one of my favorites. Easy & it tastes great. Also really like making quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's cloverleaf rolls . . . to die for. Mom also made tons of cookies around Christmas time, especially.
My cooking triumphs
Cinnamon-pecan rolls from scratch. I was so daunted by making a bread dough from scratch, but it was really not that hard at all! Cheesecake is another one I have accomplished.
My cooking tragedies
I once made an Indian dish too hot for my family to eat. Also, I once baked fish in the oven and put the glass dish on the stovetop. Apparently it was too much of a temperature change for the glass to handle because the whole thing just went "TINK" and the glass plan shattered into shards, which fell to the floor. THAT was scary!

Pizza Dough III
Mild flavor, easy to prepare and fast! Great dough for satisfying an unexpected pizza crave!!! I agree that one will need to use some additional flour when kneading/forming the dough. Good stuff, though.
