I was going to write up a fantastic review of a menu, but I can't make the hyperlinks work. If anyone is out there reading this and knows how, give me a quick run-through. I tried clicking the hyperlink button and pasting in the URL then clicking "ok" -- and nothing appears in my blog. Do I… MORE

About this Cook
My star rating: 5 STARS ***** Recipe doesn't require tweaking to taste good - cook times & temps are spot on - I'll be asked to make this again. 4 STARS **** Recipe is good, very tasty - Little tweaking is required - instructions make sense & are optimal. 3 STARS *** Recipe requires quite a bit of tweaking to match its name or intention - cook times require tweaking - method is goofy - taste is insubstantial or poor 2 STARS ** This recipe is gross but it MIGHT be my fault - This recipe is in need of tweaking to taste - Recipe is misleading (Chocolate Cake which is actually not chocolate flavored, no matter how tasty, should not come up as 5 stars on a search done for chocolate) Lastly, 1 STAR * This recipe is wrong & you must read reviews to keep from ruining your ingredients - This recipe is inedible, not due to a matter of taste, but due to biology, humans are biologically incapable of consuming this burned/salty/sour/raw whatever combo of foods. One-star ratings are rare for me.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts & yeast breads, primarily because those are what I do best. I also like making salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hors d'oeuvres for Christmas Eve is probably my favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that people remember later is a definite triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Most of them have had to do with MEAT! I can ruin a steak so fast...:-)

Mystery Ingredient Wild Blueberry Pie
I didn't love this one but it's not bad. I did not love the secret ingredient, or the cinnamon. I think I could roll with one or the other but not both. Also, the author is dead serious about 5 1/2 cups of berries. I used a 16 oz bag of frozen wild blueberries, because clearly I have no concept of how much frozen weight translates into cup volume (and I still don't because I didn't measure my frozen berries to find out how much I was off by, which is my own fault). Anyway, 16 oz of frozen berries is not enough because my pie had that "too much flour" texture in the filling, which is 100% my own fault. I made this as a no-topping pie and that worked fine with the given cooking time, following the same rules for covering it and then uncovering it. This is a good recipe, I just don't love the cinnamon and almond like I thought I would. Thanks for sharing!

Kristen's Awesome Oatmeal Cookies
They're really good, we quite enjoyed them. I used pasteurized eggs because we don't use real eggs much anymore for cholesterol issues. They came out just fine using the "fake" eggs. Put butterscotch chips in them as they're for someone else but I'd have liked them best with raisins (or Raisinets, love love love those in oatmeal cookies). Thanks for sharing!

Shoyu Chicken
I made this in the oven. Didn't care for the oregano or the paprika (I used smoked). I would make this again (on the grill) omitting those two ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
