About this Cook
I'm a mother an 11 y/o and an 8 y/o. And I LOVE everything about about it...touching it...looking at it...dreaming about makes me happy!!! My b/f loves food too and is more than happy to sample all of my creations. His daugher lives far from us and she is a diabetic so when she visited us at xmas it presented a whole new cooking challange which I gladly embraced with the help of allrecipes!! I had fun creating diabetic friendly meals that we all enjoyed! My other 2 children both love food too, although one is a little on the 'picky' side. Baking to me, is self-medicating. It's what I find myself doing when I'm stressed/sad/bored/ always makes me feel better!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake almost anything....sweets...breads...buns.. I really put my heart & soul into it and it's what I seem to be best at.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother, sisters and I baking sweets for Christmas....making gingerbread boys & girls with my kids...
My cooking triumphs
jelly doughnuts, challah bread, eclairs, samosas, bagels, perogies...
My cooking tragedies
i've screwed up a few things...and still do!!! when i was a teenager i made "fried" rice with worchestershire sauce, thinking it would be an adequate subsitute for soy sauce ...afterall, it was the same colour!!! I've had my share of tragedies...homemade pasta being another one...but i'm going to try again soon!! :-)

Microwave Pralines
This is a great recipe - worked as is for me. I didn't change anything except I took it out of the microwave at 8 mins , 30 secs and stirred at 4 mins. I also stirred mine after I took it out and it started to harden before I had them all on the waxed paper. It's a lot like making fudge, you have to pay attention to the timing and consistency. Much easier than making them the old fashioned way!

Linguine with Clams
A reviewer states that the clams will become rubbery if cooked for 20 minutes - if they were fresh clams, this would be true but canned clams are not going to get rubbery from cooking. As a matter of fact because they are already cooked, brined and canned, they will become less rubbery as they absorb more liquid during the cooking process. One reviewer who as acutally made the recipe states this as well. This is a GOOD recipe! I didn't add mushrooms or fresh parsley (used 1 tsp of dried) and it was FABULoUs!! I also added a bit of kosher salt (1/4 tsp) to the clam sauce as it was cooking and LOTS of salt to the pasta water. It was perfect! Don't expect an alfredo style "sauce" that you are going to sop up with bread - that's not what linguine and clams is! If you like REAL linguine and clams -try this recipe and don't be afraid to follow it as written. I will make this again and again - we loved it!

Sweet and Sour Pepper Pork
I followed the sauce recipe as written and it was FABULOUS! I did make changes to other ingredients b/c that is what I had in my kitchen...I used chicken breast instead of pork and a mixture of veggies I had on hand - onions, celery, peppers, baby carrots and it worked very well. I will definitely make this one again!
