About this Cook
When I got married and came to the realization that the knowledge that I had in the kitchen wasn't going to be enough for the both of us to eat "good" food. Hamburger Helper and Raman noodles were a favorite of mine and I stocked up when they went on sale (in college of course). My parents rarely cooked, we lived on dining out, but my grandma could make a meal. I remember being in college and being so excited for the holidays so that we could go over to my grandparent's house for a home cooked meal. Finally after realizing that I didn't have the background to do it on my own....I searched on the internet. I found this site and I am. I now am expiramenting with different things on my own (something I wouldn't have dared to do before). My husband has been telling me that his co-workers are jealous and ask him every day..."What's the wife cooking for dinner?" I think I do ok now. I like being in the kitchen and finding new things to make.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to cook almost anything. I like to try new things, but have to admit that I choose taste over health. I hate to admit, but my favorite thing to make (and eat) are desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to cook Christmas breakfast. It is the best to have my entire family over and make everything from scrambled eggs to biscuits and gravy and even waffles. It was great to cook for a family instead of for 2.
My cooking triumphs
It has taken me forever to make the perfect cookie. They never seem to turn out the way they are supposed to. I almost gave up and decided to buy the ready made cookie dough and not do the work myself, but after 2 years of trying....I finally got one right.
My cooking tragedies
The first night that I had to cook dinner for my husband. I had no idea what to even do. I remember making fried chicken. It wasn't the best, but I tried. That was enough for me. Since then, he says I have gotten better at my cooking...which I have to admit is a compliment. My husband always talks about dinners at work and several of his co-workers have invited themselves to dinner....I don't mind.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers
These were delicious. I had to cut down a little on the mayo and cheese because I didn't make sure I had enough, but it still tasted amazing. Added some garlic pickles and a little more cheese while in the oven. Pretty darn close to the restaurant chain. Thanks for the post.
