About this Cook
Please dont laugh. I just can't cook. I'm trying. But the fire dept. has banned me from the kitchen. My friends think it's funny. You are probably laughing as you read this. But after the 4th time setting the kitchen on fire in 6 months, I've been told not to try to cook. But little did they know just how stubborn I am. So here I am on, trying my darnest to learn how to cook. As of yet I have not set anything on fire! Maybe I'm on a roll! I so hope so! Yay me!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake chocolate chip cookies. Those I don't burn....usually. I made my own homemade vanilla and use organic real butter in the chocolate chip cookies and they turn out AMAZING!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any cooking traditions. Maybe I'm setting some traditions now.
My cooking triumphs
I have none. I seriously burnt a hole in my teapot trying to boil water.
My cooking tragedies
I've set my kitchen on fire 4 times in 6 months. Does that count as a tragedy? The fire dept. said I'm not allowed in the kitchen anymore and our local college rejected my request to join a cooking class due to my fire setting skills.

Breaded Chicken Fingers
We made this recipe a week ago and the family has been asking for it ever since. I'm making it again tonight and the family was asking if it was the same recipe. I assured them it was the same recipe and they were filled with delight. Lol. We use Almond milk rather than cows milk and no need to change the recipe. This recipe is absolutely wonderful! Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Fluffy Pancakes
I use Almond Milk rather than cows milk for our pancakes and continue the recipe as listed. The pancakes turn out AMAZING and my family wont eat any other pancakes now. This is recipe is one of our favorites.

Wow! This recipe is good! I made it vegan-style, no meat. This was so tasty! Worth making again and again.
